in reply to Carp not working after change to objects

You've ommitted to set RaiseError => 1 in your DBI connect attributes.

Therefore this has been raised as a warning not an error. That's why it's not being caught by CGI::Carp's error handler.

Update: The following code illustrates, this.

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use CGI::Carp qw/fatalsToBrowser/; use DBI; # Without RaiseError #line 100 my $dbh1 = DBI->connect("dbi:SQLite:my.db","","",); $dbh1->do("select * from crud"); # bad query on $dbh1 # With RaiseError #line 200 my $dbh2 = DBI->connect("dbi:SQLite:my.db","","",{RaiseError => 1}); $dbh2->do("select * from crud"); # bad query on $dbh2
The CGI::Carp handler error handler doesn't get invoked until the bad query on $dbh2.

    Thanks for the reply, but I'm pretty sure that's not it. I want DBI to just give me a warning, it's my own code that does a Croak. (I don't want to croak in all situations of a DBI's carp).
      Sorry this didn't help.

      Btw, I'm not able exactly replicate your error with my Sqlite driver. My prepare statement on an unknown table returns undef, not a valid statement handle.

      my $sth = $dbh1->prepare("insert into guff values (1,2,3)") or croak "prepare error" # dies here for me

      If you're not raising errors, be aware that prepare may return undef.

      Also consider localisd error handling. You still has the option of dieing or continuing:

      my $dbh = DBI->connect(... ,{RaiseError => 1}); do { local $SIG{__ERROR__} = \&my_handler; # database code }
