Well, I am, too, waiting for an explanation of simpleconnect(). Anyway,

  • use strict;
  • use warnings; and check error_log
  • my result=0; is missing a $
  • $result is scoped wrong
  • The eval appears to be useless (I don't recall DBI->connect dying without RaiseError)
  • You really ought to set RaiseError to 1.
  • Databases stop the transaction and refuse to continue when an error is encountered.
  • You ought to commit even with zero changed rows. (Or roll back.)
  • Check the error log for database errors.
