What does the '@' operator mean? I've seen it in scripts and can't figure it out. The online documentation at php.net lists '@' as an operator in the order of precedence, with a link to the Types pages, but none of the Types pages has any mention of it. Niether do any of the other language syntax reference pages. (I know. I looked through them all!)
I've played around with it on the php command line, and as far as I can tell, it doesn't actually do anything.
Sample code I saw with it:
if (!$result = @ mysql_query ($query, $connection)) showerror();Any help?
