ldapperl - Perl Extension for OpenLDAP

    Perl Extension for OpenLDAP is a PERL extensions package derived from the PerLDAP package. The goal of Perl Extensions for OpenLDAP is to expose the native OpenLDAP C and C++ APIs, as is, to programs written in the PERL programming language.

    There are a number of PERL extensions that provide LDAP API similar to that described in RFC1823, for example Perl-LDAP.  The ldapperl project aims to instead export the OpenLDAP API as closely as possible to OpenLDAP libraries, allowing more of the libraries features to be available to PERL scripts.

The ldapperl project summary can be found at http://sourceforge.net/projects/ldapperl/

Project status
Commited changes to the library.  Added support for ldap_initialize() and reworked ldap_set_option().  Thus, ldaps:/// works.

New scripts in examples for for simple use of ldap_modify_ext_s() and ldap_add_ext_s().  All code is in CVS.

Most of the old code works.  What's really needed is testing to weed out the the ones that don't.

Initially uploaded source code into CVS.  The source code is currently just a lightly modified PerLDAP 1.41 source tree.

See http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=51680 for instructions on how to download the source code for CVS.
