Input Filter?

Hi,

I have been searching for a good input filter class or how-to guide.
All I found were vague concept descriptions or alpha-release or more than a
year old, dead projects.

Isn't there a comprehensive class to filter user inputs for specific
purposes such as display, sql storage and filter features such as specific
html tags, filter JS, etc etc?

thanks

>From what I've seen there really isn't. I mainly develop database
applications and have always had to do my own filtering because there
are so many different criteria for the different situations. Now there
are functions that will put escape characters into a string to make it
DB save like mysql_real_escape_string(), but that's about it.
