so by saying that die does not work in your script, that means that you tried and die did not work or did not produce any error (or something of that nature) or you assumed it would not, or something else? I am interested to know (since I do not know much about DBI) why it would not work there.
I know many do not like to useeval because of security reasons but, if you used it (in correspondence w/ $@) would that catch the errors if die did/could not? or would it not work for the same reason die would not/could not?
thank you for your time
