;;; Commentary:
;;    This file provides mid-level and user-level functions to access directory
;;    servers using the LDAP protocol (RFC 1777). 

;;; Installation:
;;    LDAP support must have been built into XEmacs.

HOST is the hostname of an LDAP server (with an optional TCP port number
appended to it  using a colon as a separator). 
PROPn and VALn are property/value pairs describing parameters for the server.
Valid properties include:
  `binddn' is the distinguished name of the user to bind as 
    (in RFC 1779 syntax).
  `passwd' is the password to use for simple authentication.
  `auth' is the authentication method to use. 
    Possible values are: `simple', `krbv41' and `krbv42'.
  `base' is the base for the search as described in RFC 1779.
  `scope' is one of the three symbols `subtree', `base' or `onelevel'.
  `deref' is one of the symbols `never', `always', `search' or `find'.
  `timelimit' is the timeout limit for the connection in seconds.
  `sizelimit' is the maximum number of matches to return."
