= active-form plugin for Rails

active-form is a plugin that makes it easy to have model objects that support the 
ActiveRecord Validations but are not backed by database tables. The plugin is designed
to make it possible to use the ActiveForm derived classes in a very similar manner to
the ActiveRecord::Base derived objects.

Originally described at;

== How To Define An ActiveForm Object

class Search < ActiveForm
  attr_accessor :text
  validates_length_of :text, :maximum=>30

== How To Use ActiveForm Object In Controller

class NavigatorController < ApplicationController
  def search
    @search =[:search])
    if @search.valid? search here...

== How To Use ActiveForm Object In View

<%= start_form_tag(:action => 'search') %>
<%= error_messages_for('search') %>
<%= text_field('search', 'text', {"maxlength" => 30}) %>
<button type="submit">Save</button>
<%= end_form_tag %>
