NAME ^

Net::LDAP::Shell - an interactive LDAP shell

SYNOPSIS ^

my $shell = Net::LDAP::Shell->new(); $shell->run();

DESCRIPTION ^

Net::LDAP::Shell is the base module for an interactive LDAP shell, modeled after the Unix CLI but hopefully nowhere near as complicated. It has both builtin commands (found by running 'builtins' on the CLI) and external commands (?).

You probably want to actually just run 'perldoc ldapsh', rather than reading this.

DESCRIPTION ^

assign

Adds a variable.

command

Takes the command typed by the user and Does the Right Thing(TM). Accepts a single typed command as an argument, and returns the return value of the executed command.

gnureadline

What kind of readline are we? GNU ReadLine has some special capabilities.

load

My own little version of autoload. Once command has found that a command is not a builtin command, it runs load to try to autoload the command. load searches its path (stored in $CONFIG{'PATH'}) for other commands, and if it finds any it returns the package of the command; otherwise it returns null.

loadhistory

Load the history file.

loadprofile

Load the profile.

new

The constructor for the shell. Accepts a hash as arguments, containing anything that is otherwise in the %CONFIG hash.

parse

Actually parses the command line. Accepts a string (the command as typed by the user) and returns an array.

prompt

Prints the prompt. Does various replacements on the $CONFIG{'prompt'} string to make the prompt meaningful. This is called at the end of every completed command.

resetline

Clears the current line and provides another prompt. Usually the result of ^C.

run

Executes the shell. Yah, this is probably redundant, but I don't really care...

search

An ldapsearch command which must be called as an object method; it takes its config info from the %CONFIG hash and performs a search. It returns a list of entries if any are found, and returns null if none are. It sets error if an error was found.

teardown

Clean up everything and close.

term

Return the ReadLine object.

termattrs

Return the ReadLine attributes

writehistory

Write the history file.

shellSearch

An ldapsearch command which can be called independently, and is exported for use by external commands. Otherwise it is exactly equivalent to the search method.

buildins

Constructs the builtin commands on demand. Returns null on failure and returns the command on success.
