OR construction in erlang ?

Hi everyone

Is there an equivalent to the PHP "or" construction ? I'd like to be 
able to throw errors when a match fails, i.e. :

ok = test_function(Args) or throw(error_in_test_function).

I know I can achieve the same with a catch and case syntax but nesting 
several tests gets ugly (or increases the number of functions in a 
module).

Thanks :)
