Your business logic doesn't go in the controller, it goes in the model.

Catalyst::Controller::FormBuilder just exposes the CGI::FormBuilder
object; see its docs for details on that.

Note that "anychange gives me error" isn't something we can help with. If
you don't tell us the actual error message, we can't do anything - you're
almost as vague as my uncle is when he says "the internet is broken".

Oh, and ignore Ali M. He likes telling people how awful their documentation
is and how they should write more but hasn't sent a single patch himself.
