Yes. Sorry , I forgot to mention there are other mdules for Form
handling out there.  Class::DBI::FormBuilder  and FromForm and ect. 
These  are more powerful and may be better platforms.  FormBuilder
notably is very powerful and does javascript validation for you if you
set it up.

 i use AsForm / FromCGI  style because i enjoy its simplicicty and use
it like CGI calling individual methods to get individual inputs.
( $class->_to_select()  -- select box of objects in this class, 
$obj->_to_select -- object selected ,  $obj->_to_hidden  ,
,  -- hidden input for object  , etc ,)
 and have hacked a lot of useful custom functionality.  AsForm has a
lot of potential but is currently unfinished and not developed. It
could use some serious developement and be real cool . Of course I
have not tried the others. Perhaps they blow it out of the water and
it is not worth developing further. Is there anyone who has used
various ones  that could comment?
