in reply to Re: fethrow_array return value
in thread fetchrow_array return value

In the case in question, there was no need to get the actual data, the only question was if there were any rows returned.

Also, does an empty list always evaluate to false? I guess it should... I'm just confused because it appears that this evaluation is not always doing what I expect. Maybe the problem lies elsewhere....
