Just to answer Abigail-II
's concerns mentioned earlier, I'll mention that there is a section in the DBI docs on Transactions that goes over an idiomatic method of error handling. I won't repeat it in detail, but to summarize, set RaiserError on, wrap all DBI operations in one big eval
block, check $@
after exiting the eval
block, and rollback the transaction if there was an error (update: and commit if there was no error). You can even set RaiseError during the connect (in which case you would not rollback if there were an error during the connect), and do the connect inside the eval
block, which the example in the docs does not do.
