Does anyone know why my require_once () or die(); is not working. It's always shown the Fatal error instead of the error message that I key in into the die(). See below for my code:
require_once ('abc.php') or die("oops");
Error message display as below
"Fatal error: controller::require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '1' (include_path='....."
instead of the message ("oops") I key in.
or has a higher precedence than require/require_once. Therefore php evaluates
before passing the result to require_once. Or takes two boolean operands. ('abc.php') evaluates to true therefore the whole expression is true and
is invoked. require_once takes a string, bool(true)->string => 1 =>You don't need the or die(...) there. If the file can't be read require_once will stop the php instance anyway.
