NAME

Net::LDAP::SimpleServer::LDIFStore - Data store to support Net::LDAP::SimpleServer

VERSION

version 0.0.15

SYNOPSIS

    use Net::LDAP::SimpleServer::LDIFStore;

    my $store = Net::LDAP::SimpleServer::LDIFStore->new();
    $store->load( "data.ldif" );

    my $store =
      Net::LDAP::SimpleServer::LDIFStore->new({ ldif => 'data.ldif' });

    my $ldif = Net::LDAP::LDIF->new( "file.ldif" );
    my $store = Net::LDAP::SimpleServer::LDIFStore->new($ldif);

DESCRIPTION

This module provides an interface between Net::LDAP::SimpleServer and a LDIF file where the data is stored.

As of now, this interface is quite simple, and so is the underlying data structure, but this can be easily improved in the future.

METHODS

new()

Creates a store with no data in it. It cannot be really used like that, you must load() some data with the load() method before being able to use it.

new( FILE )

Create the data store by reading FILE, which may be the name of a file or an already open filehandle. It is passed directly to Net::LDAP::LDIF.

Constructor. Expects either: a filename, a file handle, a hash reference or a reference to a Net::LDAP::LDIF object.

new( HASHREF )

Create the data store using the parameters in HASHREF. The associative-array referenced by HASHREF must contain a key named ldif, which must point to either a filename or a file handle, and it may contain a key named ldif_options, which may contain optional parameters used in the 3-parameter version of the Net::LDAP::LDIF constructor. The LDIF file will be used for reading the data.

new( LDIF )

Uses an existing Net::LDAP::LDIF as the source for the directory data.

load( PARAM )

Loads data from a source specified by PARAM. The argument may be in any of the forms accepted by the constructor, except that it must be specified.

ldif()

Returns the underlying Net::LDAP::LDIF object.

list

Returns the list of entries.
