Simput is a group of utilities useful for creating PHP Web sites. It includes a library that converts XML into an HTML form.

Form input validation is included (which checks if required fields are entered) and another form will be created to highlight fields which need to be entered.

Another included library makes data from a database or user input safer for HTML display. It also includes utilities to manipulate ISO dates to and from the US format. Another library can read a directory into an array with filtering by regular expressions.

Here are some key features of "Simput":
Create a html form from xml. Also auto verification of the form when submitted
Database Abstraction
Input Output filtering. These are routines that filter user text input for safe web display and database storage.
Date utilities. Utilities that fomat user entered dates into and out of the iso date format, usefull for database storage.

What's New in This Release:
The PHP form generator was updated.
Hidden, select, checkbox, and password field types were added.
Form submits were made "sticky", meaning that user input stays when the form is regenerated because fields were left out.
Formatting options were added, including table options.
Formatting can be done globally over the entire form or on a element by element basis.
