parsing form with a website question...

Got a question that I figured I'd ask before I reinvent the wheel.
A basic website has a form, or multiple forms. within the form, there might
be multiple elements (lists/select statements, etc...). each item would have
a varname, which would in turn be used as part of the form action, to create
the entire query...
sort of like:
so you'd get the following urls in this psuedo example:
i'm looking for an app that has the ability to parse any given "form" on a
web page, returning the complete list of possible url combinations based on
the underlying elements that make up/define the form...
anybody ever seen anything remotely close to this...???
i've been research crawlers, thinking that this kind of functionality would
already exist, but so far, no luck!
