perl-ldap Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies perl-ldap-0.68.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

    perl-ldap uses the following modules/distributions.

	MIME::Base64      - required, core module since Perl 5.7.3
	Convert::ASN1     - required
	IO::Socket::SSL   - optional, for LDAPS / start_tls support
	IO::Socket::INET6 - optional, for IPv6 support
	IO::Socket::IP    - optional, for IPv6 support
	Authen::SASL      - optional, for SASL authentication
	Digest::MD5       - optional, for SASL DIGEST-MD5 mechanism
	GSSAPI            - optional, for SASL GSSAPI mechanism
	URI::ldap         - optional, for URL parsing
	XML::SAX::Writer  - optional, for Net::LDAP::DSML
	Time::Local       - optional, for Net::LDAP::Util's time conversion functions

    If IO::Socket::IP 0.20 or higher is installed, it is dynamically (at runtime)
    preferred over IO::Socket::INET6.

    First ensure the above modules/distributions are installed then
    build/test/install Net::LDAP by doing

	perl Makefile.PL
	make test
	make install

    Several modules in the distribution contain documentation. Once installed
    you can use the 'perldoc Net::LDAP' command to obtain the documentation.
    This documentation will contain pointers to the other modules.

NOTE: Everything that has been deprecated will be removed when V1.00 is
released, but who knows when that will be.

Share and Enjoy!
