    I’ve encountered a problem while trying to confirm a password as you did above: When there’s a mismatch between password and confirm, it says “The Password field does not match the password_confirm field”, instead of “The Password field does not match the password confirmation field”.

    I thought I would post this here. Perhaps others might find it useful. I developed this form validation library as an attempt to try to somewhat replicate Perl’s DataFormValidator module.
