Subject:multiple actions on dbh prepare / execute failure
View as plain text  
I'm having a bit of brain fade on this one... 
I'm working on an area of a program that does something like this

$query = SELECT Keyword FROM Boards
  $sth = $dbh -> prepare ($query) or main::not_right("Query syntax error:
$DBI::errstr. Query: $query");
  $sth -> execute() or main::not_right("Can't execute query: $query.
Reason: $DBI::errstr");

What I want to do is if the prepare or execute query fails, instead of the
above lines, I want to do something like this:

$sth = $dbh -> prepare ($query) or ...
print "Line $counter: Query syntax error: $DBI::errstr. Query: $query: Not

But I don't know how to get all these actions into the failure function.
Can anyone lend a hand...
