Net::LDAP::Control::NoOp - LDAPv3 Tree Delete control object


 use Net::LDAP;
 use Net::LDAP::Control::NoOp;

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

 $noop = Net::LDAP::Control::NoOp->new();

 $msg = $ldap->modify( 'cn=Barbara Jensen, o=University of Michigan, c=US',
                       control  => [ $noop ] );

 die "error: ",$msg->code(),": ",$msg->error()  if ($msg->code());


Net::LDAP::Control::NoOp provides an interface for the creation and manipulation of objects that represent the No-Op control as described by draft-zeilenga-ldap-noop-01.txt.

The control, which has no corresponding response control, is appropriate for all LDAP update requests, including add, delete, modify, and moddn.

Its criticality is always TRUE; it has no value.

The presence of the No-Op control in an operation request message disables the normal effect of the operation; i.e. the server will do all processing necessary to perform the operation but not actually update the directory.


Since the NoOp control does not have any values, only the constructor arguments described in Net::LDAP::Control are supported


As there are no additional values in the control, only the methods in Net::LDAP::Control are available for Net::LDAP::Control::NoOp objects.


Net::LDAP, Net::LDAP::Control,
