Yeah. I know :( Originally I couldn't find a "nice" way of translating between db errors and "user" errors. The only interface to the db errors that I could find was the error messages returned from pg_last_error. Yes, I could have used an array translating between the the strings returned by pg_last_error or whatever, but *gag* it would not only have made the code look horrible but would also have been susceptible to changes in the error messages returned by the db interface. In the end I changed tack slightly and used pg_send_* and pg_result_error_field to get a short code I could use as a reference into an array. -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
