hi, since a lot of [debug]frameworks/libs relies on set_error_handler would be nice to have a way to provide a stack of error handlers (like spl autoload stack, ticks etc)

register_error_handler($callback, /* prepend */ TRUE | FALSE)

I have encountered the very same problem.

set_error_handler() returns the previously installed error handler, so maybe it can be called using call_user_func() somehow. The example (PHP manual) of set_error_handler() actually stores the previously installed error handler but does not use it.

Given there was no traction on this ticket for more than ten

error handler from your own error handler, I'm closing this as

If anybody still feels this would be a valuable feature addition,
please pursue the RFC process[1].
