I confirm.
That Squid module is very old and is part of the "old generation" of
Example42 Puppet modules, it was done before the release of Puppet 2.6 and
doesn't support parameters (that's why you see errors when trying to pass
parameters to it).
As author of the Example42 module I suggest to use only new (NextGen)
modules. They are ther ones you see as git submodules in
https://github.com/example42/puppet-modules (which still contains both new
and old modules).
Fo next gen only modules you can refer to:

For questions specific to Example42 modules (and some documentation) you
can use also this newly born Google group:

I am using example42s squid module
https://github.com/example42/puppet-modules/tree/master/squid, and
trying to define certain user variable at the puppet/manifest/nodes.pp
level This is the first module of their's I've tried, I've read over
their documentation and FAQ and for the life of me I can not figure this
out. To me their examples are VERY HIGH level and I'm _really_ new to
puppet. I'm sure I'm missing something fundamental but I'm just not seeing
it. I've also installed example42s 'common' module which is needed to make
the type of changes I'm talking about.

The following works fine:
node 'xio99cdetest1.mygroup.com' {
include squid


node 'xio99cdetest1.mygroup.com' {
class { 'squid':
squid_port => '3030',

Error: Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Error 400 on
SERVER: Invalid parameter squid_port at /etc/puppet/manifests/nodes.pp:94
on node xio99cdejump01.centric.com
If you load up the init.pp from this module you'll notice that after the
"class squid" declaration there's no parameters listed for the class. This
is because this is a "old style" module at this point and is just setting
variables directly in params.pp. You would be best off looking for a
better squid module while you get up to speed on Puppet.

The best I could find for you is https://github.com/dezwart/puppet-squid currently,
if you look in the init.pp in there as a counter example to the example42
one you'll quickly see how the parameters belong directly to the class. In
this case he doesn't have squid_port as a parameter, so it won't be usable
without modifications for you, but it's a better example of the kind of
structure a squid module should contain.

If this is all horrible for you and you're not able to make any headway
let me know and I can give you some help to modify one of these modules to
make the port a parameter.
