Hi all! Have a question about hiding PHP errors from the end user.
        I have the following lines:

$fp = fsockopen ($host, 80, $errno, $errstr, $timeout);
        if (!$fp) {
                // problem, put error handing code here
        } else {
                // success, do whatever here

but if fsockopen is unsuccessful, PHP will display an error warning on the page 
before it even gets to my error handling code.
        I found the display_errors command at:

< http://ie.php.net/manual/en/errorfunc.configuration.php#ini.display-errors>

but they give the following warning:

"This is a feature to support your development and should never be used on 
production systems (e.g. systems connected to the internet)."

        Am unclear what that means - is it okay to add:


to my page, so that an end user won't ever get the warning displayed and I can 
deal with the error behind the scenes? Or is there a better way to keep PHP 
from writing error codes to the screen?
