                 Ruby/LDAP -- A Ruby extension library for LDAP

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DESCRIPTION

'Ruby/LDAP' is a Ruby extension library that provides an interface to the LDAP
API as described in RFC1823.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

REQUIREMENT

  * Ruby 1.8.x (at least 1.8.2 if you want to use ldap/control)
  * OpenLDAP, Netscape SDK, Windows 2003 or Windows XP

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PORTS

  * FreeBSD ("Akinori -Aki- MUSHA" <knu@idaemons.org>)
  * Debian (Akira Yamada <akira@ruby-lang.org>)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BUILDING

extconf.rb will try to use the OpenLDAP 2 or Netscape SDK libraries and guess
paths to some header files and libraries from the position of ldap.h. If you'd
like to see the available options for extconf.rb, run it with '--help' option.

    $ ruby extconf.rb [--with-openldap1|--with-openldap2|--with-netscape|--with-wldap32]
    $ make

This will create ldap.so, which you can either manually copy into place or
install with:

    $ make install

If you're building the software on Windows, you may need to use nmake instead
of make.

SSLConn is a subclass of Conn, so its objects have access to the same methods
as Conn objects.

In ldap/schema.rb:

     LDAP::Conn#schema(attrs = nil, sec = 0, usec = 0) : schema
     LDAP::Schema#must(oc) : attributes
     LDAP::Schema#may(oc)  : attributes
     LDAP::Schema#names(attr) : names
     LDAP::Schema#sup(oc)  : object class

In ldap/control.rb:

     LDAP::Control.encode(array) : String
     LDAP::Control#decode : Array

In ldap/ldif.rb:

     LDAP::Entry#to_ldif : LDAP::LDIF::Entry
     LDAP::Entry#to_s : Alias of LDAP::Entry#to_ldif
     LDAP::Mod#to_ldif(dn) : LDAP::LDIF::Mod
     LDAP::Mod#to_s(dn) : Alias of LDAP::Mod#to_ldif
     LDAP::Record.new(dn, change_type, attrs, mods=nil, ctrls=nil)
     LDAP::Record#send(conn) : self
     LDAP::Record#clean : self
     LDAP::LDIF.mods_to_ldif( dn, *mods )
     LDAP::LDIF.parse_entry(lines) : LDAP::Record (raise LDAP::LDIFError)
     LDAP::LDIF.parse_file(file, sort=false)
			   : self (if a block is given) /
			     Array (if no block is given)

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
