Handling fatal error in PHP with register_shutdown_function

PHP 5.2.0 bring us a new function : error_get_last()

It return an associative array describing the last error with keys "type", "message", "file" and "line" about the last error that occurred.

We can now use it with register_shutdown_function to handle fatal error, log, redirect, html page, instead of the infamous white page.

* Handling fatal error
* @return void
function fatalErrorHandler()
# Getting last error
$error = error_get_last();
# Checking if last error is a fatal error 
if(($error['type'] === E_ERROR) || ($error['type'] === E_USER_ERROR))
# Here we handle the error, displaying HTML, logging, ...
echo 'Sorry, a serious error has occured in ' . $error['file'];
# Registering shutdown function
