The next code:

$a["x"];//should trigger notice
var_dump(error_get_last());//return the error array

runs perfectly and returns an error array.
 but when I use set_error_handler it returns null
function _do_something(){}

$a["x"];//should trigger notice
var_dump(error_get_last());//return null

This code works perfectly on PHP5.4 I had changed 3 month ago to PHP7 and since then I am getting nulls in error_get_last() I am using a shutdown function to check if an error has occured and if so to send it to the developer.

The Problem exists in all type of errors notice,warning,error,fatal

Test script:
function _do_something(){}

$a["x"];//should trigger notice
var_dump(error_get_last());//return null

Expected result:
I expect to get an array of the error, like in php 5.*

Actual result:
I am getting null instead of an array

That code showed NULL in 5.4 too.

Furthermore, error_get_last() returns the expected array, if the error handler returns FALSE. This behavior hasn't changed neither, see <>.
