In mysql and pgsql, when an illegal SQL stmt is passed into prepare(), a valid $stmt is returned. But in sqlite, false is returned.

I would suggest the prepare() failure detection be postponed to execute() for all code to ensure consistency. This is what ADOdb does.

Regards, John Lim

Reproduce code:

$connstr = 'mysql:dbname=test'; $u = 'root'; $p = 'xxx';
#$connstr = "pgsql:dbname=test";$u = 'test'; $p = 'xxx';
#$connstr = 'sqlite:' . getenv('HOME') . "/.web-watch.sql3";
$db = new PDO($connstr,$u,$p);

echo "<h3>Prepare</h3>";
$st2 = $db->prepare("selectx abc from nosuchtable ");
echo "errorcode=",$db->errorCode(),"<br>";
echo "errorinfo="; var_dump($db->errorInfo()); echo "<br>";

if ($st2) {
	echo "<h3>Execute</h3>";
	$ok = $st2->execute();

	echo "return value of execute(): '"; var_dump($ok); echo "'<br>";
	echo "errorcode=",$db->errorCode(),"<br>";
	echo "errorinfo="; var_dump($db->errorInfo()); echo "<br>";
} else
	echo "Statement not created<br>";

Expected result:
Output for mysql:

errorinfo=array(1) { [0]=> string(5) "00000" }
return value of execute(): 'bool(false) '
errorinfo=array(3) { [0]=> string(5) "00000" [1]=> int(1064) [2]=> string(175) "You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'selectx abc from nosuchtable' at line 1" } 

Actual result:
Output for sqlite:

errorinfo=array(3) { [0]=> string(5) "HY000" [1]=> int(1) [2]=> string(28) "near "selectx": syntax error" }
Statement not created

Sorry John, won't change this.  It's better to fail early where possible.
