  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.
