in reply to Ubiquity of the CGI param method

I *think* I see where you're going with this. Basically you want arbitrary data structure validation.

Typically people call the "profile" for such validation, a schema. You'll see that term most frequently with XML data.

In the Perl world, there are no doubt a number of tools that let you validate data against a schema. One such tool is Data-Rx (homepage). One particularly nice feature is that the author has also prepared implementations in other languages, so the same schema can be used against a number of different end-points.

Sorry for not directly answering your question, but I would feel silly if I didn't mention this existing tool.

[marto]: "Eugenie Scott, executive director of the National Center for Science Education, dubbed this approach the Gish gallop, describing it as "where the creationist is allowed to run on for 45 minutes or an hour, spewing forth torrents of error that the
[marto]: evolutionist hasn't a prayer of refuting in the format of a debate." She also criticized Gish for failing to answer objections raised by his opponents"
