1 bootstrap.inc _backdrop_exception_handler($exception)

Provides custom PHP exception handling.

Uncaught exceptions are those not enclosed in a try/catch block. They are always fatal: the execution of the script will stop as soon as the exception handler exits.


$exception: The exception object that was thrown.

    // make any FATAL errors return 500 responses instead of 200, and also
