Web form generation and validation

szabgab has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am thinking to create a web based survey and I thought the best way would be to describe the questions and the possible answers as a json or yaml file. Then generate the forms from there (possibly spreading several pages). From the same description file I could derive the rules for input validation and then I could use something like Data::FormValidator to validate the results.

In the end I'd like to plug this in a Dancer based application.

I wonder what modules are out there on CPAN that could help doing this?

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    HTML::FormHandler or HTML::FormFu. I believe both do validation so you won't need another piece for that. Dancer would be fine and has picked up a lot of components quickly. Catalyst has many more if you wanted to do something a bit bigger/deeper.

    I would use KEYWORDS: survey, online survey, questionnaire, online questionnaire, webbased survey, statistics, mod_perl, mod_survey, apache, Joel Palmius

[Corion]: Text::CSV_XS for all your CSV file parsing needs. Other than that, what problems do you have with perlre, and capturing everything after the comma? Also, index and substr would also work.
[choroba]: my ($value) = $string =~ /.*,(.*)/
[choroba]: The .* at the beginning matches the longest possible substring, so it eats any previous commas
[choroba]: But for CSV, use appropriate modules
