Error "Unparenthesized `a ? b : c ? d : e` is deprecated. Use either `(a ? b : c) ? d : e` or `a ? b : (c ? d : e)`" does not trigger own error handler. Callingerror_get_last() does return this error.

Test script:
function shutdown()
    $error = error_get_last();


function myErrorHandler($errno, $errstr, $errfile, $errline)
    echo "\n\n--------------- ERROR ---------------------\n\n";
    echo "\n".'errno = '; print_r($errno);
    echo "\n".'errstr = '; print_r($errstr);
    echo "\n".'errfile = '; print_r($errfile);
    echo "\n".'errline = '; print_r($errline);

    return true;


$a = 1;
$b = 2;
$c = 3;
$d = 4;
$e = 5;

echo $a ? $b : $c ? $d : $e;

parse_str ('wrweqr');

Expected result:
As you can see parse_str is handle by the own error handler. "echo $a ? $b : $c ? $d : $e;" should also be handled.

Actual result:
Only parse_str is handled.

This is a compile-time error, that is triggered before your set_error_handler() call. To catch it, set_error_handler() needs to be called before the file is included.

This is indeed the case when opcache is disbaled. BUT if you enable opcase the error is not handled by the error handler. Only by the shutdown handler.

Yes, opcache disables custom error handlers during compilation. I also checked that the opcache.replay_warnings mode in PHP 8 doesn't affect this.

It looks like this opcache issue already has a bug report at bug #73665.
