in reply to RFC: Databases made easy

If an error did occur (maybe you don't have write permission for the current directory) most likely you will see the error message twice - once generated by the DBI/DBD code, and once from the die $@;
That can easily be prevented by doing:
$dbh->{PrintError} = 0;
The DBI manual recommends this:
If you turn "RaiseError" on then you'd normally turn "PrintError" off.
my $entries = eval { my $entries = 0; my $sth = $dbh->prepare ($sql); #2 while (my ($name, $age) = each %people) { #3 ++$entries if $sth->execute ($name, $age); #4 } $dbh->commit (); #5 return $entries; } or do { my $err = $@; eval {$dbh->rollback ()} or $err .= "\n Rollback processing +failed!"; die $err; };
That code will die if %people is empty. I'd write that as:
my $entries; eval { ... stuff ... $entries++ if $sth->execute($name, $age); ... more stuff ... $dbh->commit; 1; } or do { ... rollback and die ... };

[LanX]: It seems that PHP's official docs use "closure" and "anonymous function" interchangeably, even though their closures don't capture surrounding state without using the 'use' language construct.
