See the Zope book (2.5) chp. 10, section "Passing Parameters to Scripts".

It's an easy and quick reading, worthy of your time :-)

:flags are used to convert parameters coming from HTML forms, from strings
to a python data type. Quite usefull is the possibility to put together
several form fields in a list or in an object (record).
