Here is a more advanced function to convert an error code to text:

<?php

function preg_errtxt($errcode)
{
    static
$errtext;

    if (!isset(
$errtxt))
    {
       
$errtext = array();
       
$constants = get_defined_constants(true);
        foreach (
$constants['pcre'] as $c => $n) if (preg_match('/_ERROR$/', $c)) $errtext[$n] = $c;
    }

    return
array_key_exists($errcode, $errtext)? $errtext[$errcode] : NULL;
}

?>

In PHP 5.5 and above, getting the error message is as simple as:

<?php
echo array_flip(get_defined_constants(true)['pcre'])[preg_last_error()];

The above function pcre_error_deocde [sic] is not correct - not all of the used constants are errors constants. For example, when the error is actually PREG_BAD_UTF8_ERROR, the function outputs the text for PREG_SPLIT_OFFSET_CAPTURE.

Just an addition to my previous note: In unicode mode (with "u" modifier), PREG_BAD_UTF8_ERROR only reflects errors in the subject string. If the pattern itself contains invalid characters, preg_match() (or preg_match_all()) returns false but preg_last_error() returns 0 indicating PREG_NO_ERROR. Instead, php issues a warning: "preg_match(): Compilation failed: invalid UTF-8 string at offset 0"

here's the code to check for all errors
<?php
if (preg_last_error() == PREG_NO_ERROR) {
    print
'There is no error.';
}
else if (
preg_last_error() == PREG_INTERNAL_ERROR) {
    print
'There is an internal error!';
}
else if (
preg_last_error() == PREG_BACKTRACK_LIMIT_ERROR) {
    print
'Backtrack limit was exhausted!';
}
else if (
preg_last_error() == PREG_RECURSION_LIMIT_ERROR) {
    print
'Recursion limit was exhausted!';
}
else if (
preg_last_error() == PREG_BAD_UTF8_ERROR) {
    print
'Bad UTF8 error!';
}
else if (
preg_last_error() == PREG_BAD_UTF8_ERROR) {
    print
'Bad UTF8 offset error!';
}
?>
