main -- Dummy for main()


There is no function named main() except in the PHP source. In PHP 4.3.0, a new type of error handling in the PHP source (php_error_docref) was introduced. One feature is to provide links to a manual page in PHP error messages when the PHP directive html_errors is set to on (it's on by default).

Sometimes error messages refer to a manual page for the function main() which is why this page exists. Please add a user comment below that mentions what PHP function caused the error that linked to main() and it will be fixed and properly documented.
