How to Access PUT data in Zend Framework

So I have followed a few tutorials online on how to build a RESTful API in Zend Framework (http://mwop.net/blog/228-Building-RESTful-Services-with-Zend-Framework) and everything seemed to go swimmingly except when it came to retrieveing the PUT request data. Took me a while to find this however there is a controller plugin pre-built in Zend Framework that you have to enable (Zend_Controller_Plugin_PutHandler). Basically it add the PUT data into the standard request object so you can access the data via getParams() or getParam(‘var’).
