PublicShow -- Extract parameters (GET and POST) from HTTP requests

This module is used to extract the value of GET or POST parameters from an HTTP request. The typical usage is e.g.,

:- http_handler('/register_user', register_user, []).

register_user(Request) :-
                    [ name(Name, []),
                      sex(Sex, [oneof([male,female])]),
                      birth_year(BY, [between(1850,10000)])
    register_user(Name, Sex, BY),
    html_reply_page(title('New user added'),

Get HTTP GET or POST form-data, applying type validation, default values, etc. Provided options are:
Causes the declarations for an attributed named A to be fetched using call(Goal, A, Declarations).
Return the data read from the GET por POST request as a list Name = Value. All data, including name/value pairs used for Parms, is unified with Data.

The attribute_declarations hook allows sharing the declaration of attribute-properties between many http_parameters/3 calls. In this form, the requested attribute takes only one argument and the options are acquired by calling the hook. For example:

                    [ sex(Sex)
                    [ attribute_declarations(http_param)

http_param(sex, [ oneof(male, female),
                  description('Sex of the person')

Implements the parameter translation of http_parameters/2 or http_parameters/3. I.e., http_parameters/2 for a POST request can be implemented as:
http_parameters(Request, Params) :-
    http_read_data(Request, Data, []),
    http_convert_parameters(Data, Params).
Source http_convert_parameter(+Options, +FieldName, +ValueIn, -ValueOut) is det
Conversion of an HTTP form value. First tries the multifile hook http:convert_parameter/3 and next the built-in checks.
Option- List as provided with the parameter
FieldName- Name of the HTTP field (for better message)
ValueIn- Atom value as received from HTTP layer
ValueOut- Possibly converted final value
- type_error(Type, Value)
