I'm kind of stuck with something in PHP. I need to create and throw a custom exception, but I'm not sure how to do it. Can someone please guide me through the process?
Here's some context: I'm working on a web application where users can create and manage their own playlists. I have a function called "addSongToPlaylist" that is responsible for adding a song to a specific playlist. However, I want to implement some checks before adding the song, like ensuring the user has the necessary permissions or making sure the song is not already in the playlist.
I think throwing a custom exception would be the best way to handle these scenarios. That way, I can catch the exception in the calling code and display an appropriate error message to the user.
I just need some help in understanding how I can create and throw a custom exception in PHP. Any examples or code snippets would be greatly appreciated!
Looking forward to your responses. Thanks in advance!
