in thread how to deal with error message

Update: Or, instead of having the die command in your subroutine (which may be troublesome if you plan to call the subroutine more than once) you can use or sendmail() and die; rather than just sendmail();

DBI->connect(...) or sendmail() and die; would mean to die whenever the connection is successful ;-)

I guess you meant DBI->connect(...) or do { sendmail(); die; };. :)

    ...or why not,

    sendmail(), die unless DBI->connect(...)

    At last, a user level that overstates my experience :-))
