Fatal errors not showing to screen

Hi, I'm developing on a system that the engineer has set so that fatal errors cause a white screen instead of showing the error code.  To retrieve the error I have to FTP get the error.log file which, as I'm sure you understand, is a HUGE pain in the butt.  I've tried setting error_level(E_ALL) on my pages to over ride this setting locally but it's not working.  Does anyone know of a way to get around this on a page by page basis?  The engineer won't budge on the settings for the server.

Thanks!

Not quite, but you put me on the right path so full credit:

ini_set("display_errors","On");
