I've recently started working on a PHP project and I'm looking for a way to define constants for error messages and validation messages. I want to keep my code clean and organized, so I was wondering if using an enumeration (enum) would be a suitable solution for this.
By using an enum, I could define different error or validation messages as constants, making it easier for me to reference them throughout my code. This way, I wouldn't have to hardcode the messages every time I need to display or check them.
So, my question is: Can I use an enumeration to define constants for error messages or validation messages in PHP? Have any of you tried this approach before? And if so, how effective was it?
I'm open to any suggestions or alternative solutions you may have! Thanks in advance for your help.
