Note that this does not work within an exception handler.

e.g.

<?php

function handler1(Exception $e) {
echo
"handler1\n";
restore_exception_handler();
throw
$e;
}
function
handler2(Exception $e) {
echo
"handler2\n";
}

set_exception_handler( 'handler2' );
set_exception_handler( 'handler1' );

throw new
Exception( 'might expect to see handler1, handler2' );

/* Outputs:
handler1
PHP Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Exception' with message 'might expect to see handler1, handler2' in /tmp/demo.php:15
Stack trace:

thrown in /tmp/demo.php on line 15
*/
