NAME

jpegDisplay.pl - A script to display a jpeg picture from jpegPhoto attribute of an LDAP directory entry.

SYNOPSIS

The intent of this script is to show the user how to retrieve and display a jpeg photo from an LDAP directory entry.

This script has been tested on OpenLDAP 2.0.7 & 2.4.39 directory servers and a Netscape 4.x LDAP directory server.

You may need to change the first line of the Perl jpegDisplay.pl script to point to your file pathname of perl.

Input options.

 -b    Search base.
 -d    Debug mode.  Display debug messages to stdout.
 -D    Distingushed Name for authenication purposes.
 -h    LDAP directory host computer.
 -w    Authenication password.
 -a    Attribute that will be incorporated into the search filter.
 -v    Data that will be incorporated into the search filter.
 -V    LDAP version of the LDAP directory.
 -Z    start SSL encryption using start_tls

 Usage: jpegDisplay.pl -b <base> -h <host> -d <number> -D <DN> \
                    -w <password> -a <attribute> -v <data>

Inside the script is a opt hash that can be initialized to default values that can eliminate the need for many of the input options on the command line.

INSTALLING THE SCRIPT

Install the jpegDisplay.pl script anywhere you wish, I suggest /usr/local/bin/jpegDisplay.pl.

Since the script is in PERL, feel free to modify it if it does not meet your needs. This is one of the main reasons I did it in PERL. If you make an addition to the code that you feel other individuals could use let me know about it. I may incorporate your code into my code.
