Easily generate and process stateful CGI forms

Do you hate generating, processing, and validating CGI forms? Do you love Perl?

FormBuilder is the answer. It's an extremely fast, robust Perl module with a ridiculous set of features.

Here's the main stuff that I [the author] think is cool:

* DWIMmery This module tries to "Do What I Mean". Tell it the fields you care about, and it takes care of all the stupid HTML and JavaScript generation and processing for you. It also gives you back the correct values that you want. It will even label your fields automatically with human-readable names.

* Input field abstraction You simply define your fields and their options, and FormBuilder will take care of figuring out what the best HTML representation is. It will then generate the appropriate input fields (text, select, radio, etc), even changing any JavaScript actions appropriately.

* Easy handling of defaults Just specify a hash of values to use as the defaults for your fields. This will be searched case-insensitively and displayed in the form. What's more, if the user enters something via the CGI that overrides a default, when you use the field() method to get the data you'll get the correct value.

* Correct stickiness Stickiness is a PITA. FormBuilder correctly handles even multiple values selected in a multiple select list, completely integrated with proper handling of defaults.

* Robust field validation Form validation sucks, and this is where FormBuilder is a big help. It has tons of builtin patterns, and will even generate gobs of JavaScript validation code for you. You can specify your own regexps as well, and FormBuilder will even check multivalued select lists correctly. See the full list of built-in patterns.

* Multiple submit mode support FormBuilder allows you to reliably tell whether the person clicked on the "Update" or "Delete" button of your form, normally a big pain.

* Template driver support FormBuilder can natively "drive" several major templating engines: * HTML::Template * CGI::FastTemplate * Text::Template * Template Toolkit If you want to build a complete form application with a template in less that 20 lines of Perl, FormBuilder is for you.

* Internationalized, Customizable Messaging Sick of US-centric modules? You can customize every single message that FormBuilder outputs for your locale. See the full messages list.

* Simple Interface Heck, I specialized in User Interface Design for my degree!

* Extensive Documentation

DESCRIPTION
    I hate form generation and validation because the majority of the
    process is tedious and mindless. In addition to being boring, there is
    too much room for simple error, which could render your application
    insecure or just plain useless.

    So I wrote FormBuilder to try and get rid rid of the stoopi
