Request #30126 Enhancement for error message for abstract classes
Submitted: 2004-09-17 09:09 UTC Modified: 2005-05-02 18:14 UTC
From: mfischer@php.net Assigned: helly
Status: Closed Package: Feature/Change Request
PHP Version: 5.0.4 OS: All
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2004-09-17 09:09 UTC] mfischer@php.net
Description:
------------
When class 'B' extends another class 'A' which is declared abstract but does not implement all the methods, the error message is:

Fatal Error: Class B contains 1 abstract methods and must therefore be declared abstract (A::sampleMethod) in ....

Two things:
1) It would be nice to account for singularity of the word method if only one method is missing
2) It would be nice to also tell the user that he can also implement the remaining methods:

Fatal Error: Class B contains 1 abstract method and must therefore be declared abstract or implement the remaining methods (A::sampleMethod) in ....

Just sugar, but anyway ;)
