$sth = $dbh->prepare($sql) or what?by Steve_BZ (Chaplain)

Steve_BZ has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I would like to have a more structured way of reporting database errors than just the ubiquitous: $sth = $dbh->prepare($sql) or die "Cannot prepare: " . $dbh->errstr();
Ideally, I'd have a standard piece of code that checks the error code eg:
So I could log errors to a file or email them to a standard address or just display a dialogue box with an error message chosen by me rather than the system error message.
What are my options?
