in thread How to safely test if a database handle is capable of transactions?

ikegami: I'm just wondering:

Why do you say:
eval { local $dbh->{AutoCommit} = 0; }; $self->{_can_do_transactions} = $@ ? 0 : 1;
can be written more reliably as
$self->{_can_do_transactions} = eval { local $dbh->{AutoCommit} = 0; 1 };
?

    If there's an eval without a local $@; in the code that handles $dbh->{AutoCommit} = $previous_value;, then $@ will get clobbered. Keep in mind that $dbh->{AutoCommit} is a tied variable.
