Simple truth check

Recommended Posts

Guys,

Just a quick one...  If I insert a row into my database using mysql_query() it returns TRUE if successful and FALSE if not.  I'm assigning this value to $insert...

[code=php:0]$insert = mysql_query($sql) or die ("Couldn't execute $sql: " . mysql_error());
[/code]

Now how do I check if $insert is true?  Do I just need to include it in my if statement like so...

[code=php:0]if ($insert){ // my code...;}
[/code]

I figured that even if $insert was FALSE, the fact that it's defined would still make the above statement true, is that correct?

Regards

you could always stipulate in the "if" statement what you want i.e
[code]
if($insert == true) {

do stuff

}
[/code]
