perlknight has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

fellow monks, I need to compare ldap data between two ldap server. One is the primary and the other secondary. I am thinking of just going through each dn and comapring entries between the two. I know I get use the dn method call to get the dn, but how do I know that I am at the last dn and how to handle how to get attribute value from the last dn.

Does any know how to avoid going into a few dn? I want to start my comarison at the base, ou=mycomany,ou=com. But I want to avoid goin into ou=people,ou=mycomany,ou=com and ou=systemuser,ou=mycompany,ou=com? Thanks.
