For the latest information see
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!
