This is besides the point of your post, but consider turning on the RaiseError
attribute and then you can get rid of all your or die
code, which is actually lacking a print of $DBI::errstr
From the DBI
RaiseError (boolean, inherited)
The RaiseError attribute can be used to force errors to raise exceptions rather than simply return error codes in the normal way. It is "off" by default. When set "on", any method which results in an error will cause the DBI to effectively do a die("$class $method failed: $DBI::errstr"), where $class is the driver class and $method is the name of the method that failed.
