Simple truth check


Recommended Posts


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());

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...;}

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