Re: mysql-store-result() man page, test for error

Yes, it seems like a decent return value as long as you don't read the other manual pages, like for example and the mysql_field_count() manual page. mysql_field_count() is checked only after mysql_query() returns zero (ok) to check for the possibility that mysql_store_result() returned zero as a result of an error, and not because the query was not supposed to return anything, like for example an update or delete query. Probably an ok mysql_query() guarantees that mysql_field_count() is well defined, but the manual does not care to explain.
