Binford has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
So I have been tasked (or rather, I stupidly volunteered) to help with the conversion of our LDAP users and groups to XML format for a enterprise application that needs it. After a lot of research, I decided that using a combination of Net::LDAP::LDIF with XML::Writer seemed to be the most straightforward but I am hoping that is wrong and someone here knows A BETTER WAY? Mainly cause taking the values of the read_entry() object in LDIF, is still very awkward for each of the disparate elements to be broken up into the large # of XML tags?
If these two modules is the best way, does anyone know where there might be some example code that uses them for best effect?
