NAME ^

Net::LDAP::Extra -- Load extra Net::LDAP methods

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Net::LDAP::Extra qw(my_extn);

  $ldap = Net::LDAP->new( ... );

  $ldap->my_extn( ... );

DESCRIPTION ^

Net::LDAP::Extra allows extra methods to be added to Net::LDAP. Normally such methods would be added by sub-classing Net::LDAP, but this proves to get messy as different people write different additions and others want to use multiple of these sub-classes. Users end up having to create sub-classes of their own which inherit from all the extension sub-classes just so they can get all the features.

Net::LDAP::Extra allows methods to be added directly to all Net::LDAP objects. This can be done by creating a class Net::LDAP::Extra::name which exports functions. A use Net::LDAP::Extra qw(name) will then make these functions available as a methods on all Net::LDAP objects.

Care should be taken when choosing names for the functions to export to ensure that they do not clash with others.
