Description : Process CGI input parameters
Dealing with large web based applications with multiple forms is a
minefield. It's often hard enough to ensure you validate all your
input at all, without having to worry about doing it in a consistent
manner. If any of the validation rules change, you often have to alter
them in many different places. And, if you want to operate taint-safe,
then you're just adding even more headaches.
This module provides a simple, convenient, abstracted and extensible
manner for validating and untainting the input from web forms.
You simply create a handler with a hash of your parameters (usually
$q->Vars), and then iterate over the fields you wish to extract,
performing whatever validations you choose. The resulting variable is
guaranteed not only to be valid, but also untainted.
This module is needed by the upcoming limacute 2.0 packages by Tore Anderson.
