1. DESCRIPTION
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ApPHP DataValidator is a simple lightweight tool useful for primary general data
checks. It handles numbers, strings, emails, URLs. A range of parameters is
provided for a wide variety of different verifications. All parameters are used
optionally and could be switched on and off for every specific value.

The DataValidator component accepts an array or an object as data container, so it
can be easily used to check values got by HTTP request, obtained from database,
parsed XML or CSV file or any other source as soon as data are in correct format
(array('key'=>'value')). Error handling is made easy and flexible. If validation
process fails, you can either obtain a generated error-message or use error-details
for logging and user informing in you own style.


2. MAIN FEATURES
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Checks numbers for type, range, special values (null)
- Checks strings for size, pointing and spaces availability
- Checks URL for correct format
- Checks e-mail for correct format
- Can be stopped after the first validation failure or kept through all values
- Returns errors in a convenient way 
- Works with array of HTTP request as a default data source
- Accepts any data source in simple, natural for forms and data-base rows view
