setup( args )

Initialize the Metadata object.

args must be key/value pairs. The keys should be the names of methods, and the values will be set on those method names in the order given.

clone

Returns a clone of the Metadata object. Uses Clone::clone().

for_class( class_name )

Returns a Metadata object for class_name. Used primarily by the metadata() method in Net::LDAP::Class.
