@ squelches error messages.

AFAIK $php_errormsg is the last error that PHP incurred. not based on "@"

"@" just silences the errors from being reported, which is a "bad
thing" as error collection is done even if error_reporting is off, it
is still built internally as a string, that's why developing with
E_ALL and E_STRICT even on is the best practice. even notices wind up
adding to the internal error/etc. string stack.
