Re: what does @ mean

It suppresses error messages. I call it the drop-dead-symbol. As in :  
"Drop dead. I don't care if it works." If you have any colleagues that  
use that symbol too often, you know what I mean...

Best regards.

Personally, I use this symbol when I want to provide my own error
message or return value (such as when a function is unable to connect
to a server).
