Bug #31105 sqlite_single_query with "or die" does die when the return value is 0
Submitted: 2004-12-16 00:41 UTC Modified: 2004-12-16 01:15 UTC

Status: Not a bug Package: SQLite related

When using sqlite_single_query and the return value from the query is 0 (zero) it's handled as if the query failed.

The code will not output 0, but instead die with the following message: "not an error"

The value of $result is set to 0, which is expected.

Reproduce code:
$db = sqlite_open("test.db");
sqlite_query($db, "CREATE TABLE Test ( number NUMERIC )");
sqlite_query($db, "INSERT INTO Test (number) VALUES (0)");

$result = @sqlite_single_query($db, "SELECT number FROM Test")
 or die(sqlite_error_string(sqlite_last_error($db)));

echo $result;

Expected result:
A return value of 0 from the database being returned to $result without an exception.

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at and the instructions on how to report
a bug at

Unlike regular query execution function single_query returns a value and not a resource. Since a valid resource can never be 0, doing "or die()" is safe, this is not the case when the result can be 0 value.
