I was going through Stack Overflow and I noticed this phrase.

I am all ears

Is it some spelling error of "I am all yours" or does it mean something like "I am eager to listen"?

What is meant by this phrase & what do you call this type of phrase?


It is a casual idiom that simply means "I am listening," or "I want to hear what you have to say."
