in thread How to count rows using DBI & mysql - Performance results

It is definitly a coding style question, because we do it all over the place with PL/SQL in Oracle. Though this would not generate an error, just an exception. We use the same technique to see if a query a row from cache, if it returns an exception then we hit the table instead.

[Corion]: GotToBTru: Heh ;) I'm not really endorsing it, as I found that any gains made through it are easily squandered by the hours spent on configuring it. At least in my case :)
[GotToBTru]: Like most Swiss Army Knives, you can cut yourself trying to find the blade you actually want
