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.

Subject: Removed libcgi-validate-perl from unstable
Date: Sat, 21 May 2005 16:42:20 -0400
We believe that the request you reported is now fixed; the following
package(s) have been removed from unstable:

libcgi-validate-perl |    2.000-7 | source, all

Reason: RoQA; orphaned; NPOASR

Note that the package(s) have simply been removed from the tag
database and may (or may not) still be in the pool; this is not a bug.
The package(s) will be physically removed automatically when no suite
references them (and in the case of source, when no binary references
it).  Please also remember that the changes have been done on the
master archive ( and will not propagate to any
mirrors ( included) until the next cron.daily run at the

Packages are never removed from testing by hand.  Testing tracks
unstable and will automatically remove packages which were removed
from unstable when removing them from testing causes no dependency

Bugs which have been reported against this package are not automatically
removed from the Bug Tracking System.  Please check all open bugs and
close them or re-assign them to another package if the removed package
was superseded by another one.

Thank you for reporting the bug, which will now be closed.  If you
have further comments please address them to the just-closed bug (or by
replying to this mail if there is no bug closed).

This message was generated automatically; if you believe that there is
a problem with it please contact the archive administrators by mailing
