DESCRIPTION

This is a plugin for the Template Toolkit to do LDAP queries. It does not do updates. Mostly, it is similiar in design to the DBI plugin, except where I copied it wrong. :-)

Basically, pass in a hostname and optionally a username/password to the constructor.

To do a search, you need to specify at least base and filter arguments to the search method, but have a look at Net::LDAP(3) (the search method) because that is what is being used underneath and there are quite a few options.

The entries that you get back from the search are at present very simplistic and really only meant for display purposes only. If I need to do updates later, that functionality might be added.
