In DBI.pm the attribute that controls whether to throw a fit or fail 
is RaiseError. It is set as an attribute, usually at connect() time. when 
=> 1, DBI "raises" the error by throwing something.  You'll need eval() 
wrappers to work this way.  When RaiseError => 0, errors do not cause a 
exception, so you must check $DBI::err and/or $DBI::errstr for error codes 
error messages respectively. Which you use will be determined by you 
for eval/$@.  The downside to RaiseError => 0 is that if you miss one, 
your app
ambles merrily along, and your data can get messed up, or your users will 
subsequently experience odd behaviors fro you app as Garbage In begets 
Garbage Out.

When working directly with DBI, I like RaiseError => 0 and PrintError => 1 

so the DBI errors get printed to STDERR, and therefore logged.

update and delete return the number of affected rows from DBI, and BDIC 
this value to you, calling it "Storage dependent"
