Throw a NotImplementedError?

Is there a kind of NotImplementedError in PHP?

I want to add these to some stub-methods and interfaces, so as to warn classes that extend me, they still have work to do. Or is this achieved differently in PHP?

PHP does not have a built-in NotImplementedException however you're welcome to create your own. I suppose BadMethodCallException comes close which would be a decent candidate for extension

class NotImplementedException extends BadMethodCallException

... and in your method

public function notImplementedMethod()
    throw new NotImplementedException();

You can also very simply do something like this

throw new Exception('Not implemented');
