Description : Advanced CGI form parser and type validation
Basicly a blending of the CGI and Getopt::Long modules, and requires
the CGI module to function.
The basic concept of this module is to combine the best features of
the CGI and Getopt::Long modules. The CGI module is great for
parsing, building, and rebuilding forms, however it lacks any real
error checking abilitys such as misspelled form input names, the data
types received from them, missing values, etc. This however, is
something that the Getopt::Long module is vary good at doing. So,
basicly this module is a layer that collects the data using the CGI
module and passes it to routines to do type validation and name
consistency checks all in one clean try/catch style block.
The syntax of GetFormData() is mostly the same as the GetOptions() of
Getopt::Long, with a few exceptions (namely, the handling of
exceptions) . See the VALUE TYPES section for detail of the
available types, and the EXCEPTIONS section for exception handling
options. If given without a type, fields are assumed to be type ":s"
(optional string), which is normally correct.
This module is needed by the upcoming limacute 2.0 packages by Tore Anderson.
