The simplest way to do this is to search the entire master directory, and iterate over the record set.

use strict; use Net::LDAP; my $ld = Net::LDAP->new('myserver'); $ld->bind(dn=>'username',password=>'passwd'); my $result = $ld->search(base=>'cn=mydir', scope=>'sub', filter=>'(objectclass=*)'); while (my $entry = $result->entry()) { #do comparison here }

You'll probably need to use page support and/or async searching if your directory contains much in the way of data.

One thing to watch out for: I've done this sort of thing a few times, and tended to find that detecting when entries/attributes aren't there is the trickiest bit. It's also worth noting that there are commercial apps available that will do this sort of thing for you.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
