According to the notes in the php.ini file, E_ALL *does* include E_STRICT; to exclude it you would use E_ALL & ~E_STRICT

This may be useful for someone who has upgraded and kept their old php.ini

To enable full error reporting (recommended for development boxes) use:

use error_reporting(E_ALL | E_STRICT);

or in php.ini:

error_reporting  =  E_ALL | E_STRICT
