The PHP gurus have really simplified this issue for us.  Both the pg_query() and pg_fetch_array() methods return a false if an error occurs.  Likewise, pg_fetch_array() returns a false when it has reached the end of the recordset.  The following works very well:

if ($result = pg_query($query) and $row = pg_fetch_array($result)) {
    do {
               // process query results

    } while ($row = pg_fetch_array($result));
} else {
     // output if error
}

Best wishes
Mark
