Exception Handling in PHP

I have some code I would like to run that handle exceptions properly and I was wondering what the correct way to do it would be. I need the script to loop through database values, remove non UTF-8 values, and if there is an error record it in an array for emailing to me with successes and failures.

Here is my code
// DO SOMETHING WITH THE FILE DATA
function getMyFile($home,$away)
{
	$in = file($away);
	$out = fopen($home, "w");
		
	//REPLACE NON UTF-8 CHARACTERS AND INSERT INTO HOME FILE
	foreach ($in as $line) 
	{
		$line = preg_replace('/&(.)(acute|cedil|circ|lig|grave|ring|tilde|uml);/', "$1", $line);
		fputs($out, $line);
	}
}

$errorarray = array();
$feedcount = 0;

// LOOP THROUGH DB TO GET THINGS TO DO
while (loop_through_db_and_get_$home_and_$away)
{
	try
	{
		getMyFile($fetch['home'],$fetch['away']);
		$feedcount++;
	}
	catch (Exception $e)
	{
		$errorarray[$fetch['home']] = $e;
	}
}

// DO SOMETHING WITH THE ERRORS

if(count($errorarray) > 0)
{
	$subject = 'Run But With Errors - ' . $feedcount . " files ran smoothly.\n\n".count($errorarray)." files failed.";
	$body = "Here are the failures.\n\n";
	foreach ($errorarray as $file=>$error)
	{
		$body = $body . "File: " . $file . " failed with the following error.\n\n" . $error . "\n\n\n";
	}
}
else
{
	$subject = 'Run Smoothly - ' . $feedcount . " files.";
	$body = "Have a nice day.";
}

sendMail($subject,$body);

Open in new window


What is happening is that if the $home file does not exist the code stops and echos the error, but does not record the error in the array so the email shows a success.

Please help.

Thanks

Mike

check the value of fopen, if the result is FALSE, react accordingly
function getMyFile($home,$away)
{
	$in = file($away);
	$out = fopen($home, "w");

        if ($out === FALSE)
        {
           // file open failed
        }
        else
        {		
	//REPLACE NON UTF-8 CHARACTERS AND INSERT INTO HOME FILE
	foreach ($in as $line) 
	{
		$line = preg_replace('/&(.)(acute|cedil|circ|lig|grave|ring|tilde|uml);/', "$1", $line);
		fputs($out, $line);
	}
        }
}

Check this if it is helpful to you
// LOOP THROUGH DB TO GET THINGS TO DO
while (loop_through_db_and_get_$home_and_$away)
{
	if(getMyFile($fetch['home'],$fetch['away']))
	{
		$feedcount++;
	}
	else
	{
