Error FILE [compat_error.php]

This file contains support code for the remaining functions of the phpBCL library.

| A | PHP | phpBCL | TYPE | NAME | DESCRIPTION |---|-----------|--------|-----------|-------------------------|----------------------------------------- | + | ALL | 1.0.8 | FILE | compat_error.php | To support errors for php < 7 | + | < 7.2.0 | 1.0.8 | Class | Error | | + | < 7.2.0 | 1.0.8 | Class | TypeError | | + | < 8.0.0 | 1.0.8 | Class | ValueError |

phpBCL FILE [phpBCL.php]

This file contains support code for the remaining functions of the phpBCL library.

| A | PHP | phpBCL | TYPE | NAME | DESCRIPTION |---|-----------|--------|-----------|-------------------------|----------------------------------------- | + | ALL | 1.0.5 | FILE | phpBCL.php | To support other functions in this php library | + | >= 5.3.0 | 1.0.5 | Function | validate_encoding | Checks for any errors in the user's string encoding. | + | >= 5.3.0 | 1.0.7 | Function | alf_preg_quote | Quote regular expression characters.

DEPRECATED FILE [compat_deprecated.php]

The use of the contents of the deprecated-removed code file is the reverse of the use of other files versioning-based on the php version.

This means that from the PHP version that refers and to newer versions, without the use of phpBCL and specifically the file compat_deprecated.php, you will not be able to use this code.

| A | PHP | phpBCL | TYPE | NAME | DESCRIPTION |---|-----------|--------|-----------|-------------------------|----------------------------------------- | + | ALL | 1.0.0 | FILE | compat_deprecated.php | for deprecated-removed php functions | + | >= 8.1.0 | 1.0.0 | CONST | ENT_COMPAT | ENT_QUOTES | ENT_SUBSTITUTE | ENT_HTML401 | + | >= 8.0.0 | 1.0.0 | CONST | MB_OVERLOAD_MAIL | = 1 | + | >= 8.0.0 | 1.0.0 | CONST | MB_OVERLOAD_STRING | = 2 | + | >= 8.0.0 | 1.0.0 | CONST | MB_OVERLOAD_REGEX | = 4 | + | >= 8.0.0 | 1.0.0 | Function | each | Return the current key and value pair from an array and advance the array cursor.

VERSIONING FILES [compat_php43x.php - compat_php84x.php]

The contents of version-based files mean that since added to a specific PHP version, without using phpBCL, you will not be able to use them in older versions.
