What exactly does CGI.pm? I have a module cgiforms.py with which you
can pre-define input fields in a form and output the single input
fields. The input parameters are checked against reg exp. you define
with the input field. E.g. my project http://web2ldap.de/ is based
on that. Your mileage may vary...

Have a look at http://sites.inka.de/ms/python/pylib/. If you're
interested in using that drop me a note and I will package a newer
version with demo script.

Ciao, Michael.
