Subject: nested transactions / savepoints
Date: Nov 22 2000 6:48PM

Does anybody know if nested transactions or transaction savepoints are
supported with DBD-Sybase, and if so how?

Rational:
I want to log an error (via an update) before I rollback a whole bunch
of statements, but if I rollback the whole transaction before logging
the error, the record won't be locked anymore so there is no guarantee
that another user won't lock it before I can update it.
