You could write it as

$query->execute() or do { $SQL_FAIL = 1};
But for a single line statement, you really don't need the braces, just :
$query->execute() or $SQL_FAIL = 1;
But why are you doing it this way?

This means that you then have to check the value of SQL_FAIL every line before processing the next statement.

Wrapping it all in an eval and using RaiseError really works a treat, looks clean makes your life simpler.

If you are using the value of SQL_FAIL to figure out what statement failed, then you could go the other way and have $sql_stage (note, not all in capitals because this implies a constant, which it isn't) and you could just set $sql_stage to the current stage you're working on. As in
my $sql_stage=1; eval { $query->execute(); $sql_stage = 2; $query2->execute(); $sql_stage = 3; $query3->execute(); }; if ($@) { if ($sql_stage < 3) { $fix1->execute(); } else { $fix2->execute(); } }

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
