       Net::LDAP::Control::PreRead - LDAPv3 Pre-Read control object

	use Net::LDAP;
	use Net::LDAP::Control::PreRead;

	$ldap = Net::LDAP->new( "ldap.mydomain.eg" );

	$preread = Net::LDAP::Control::PreRead->new( attrs => [ qw/givenName/ ] );

	my $mesg = $ldap->modify( "cn=Barbara Jensen, o=University of Michigan, c=US",
				  replace => { givenName => "Babs" },
				  control => $preread );

	if ($mesg->code eq LDAP_SUCCESS) {
	  my ($previous) = $mesg->control( LDAP_CONTROL_PREREAD );
	  my $entry = $previous ? $previous->entry() : undef;

	  if ($entry) {
	    print "givenName changed from '" .
		  join("', '", $entry->get_value(givenName") .
		  "' to 'Babs'\n");

       "Net::LDAP::Control::PreRead" provides an interface for the creation and manipulation of
       objects that represent the "Pre-Read Controls" as described by RFC 4527.

       In modification operations, the "Pre-Read request control" indicates to the server that a
       copy of the original entry before the update is to be returned.	After the successful
       completion of the operation, the accompanying "Pre-Read response control" allows one to
       retrieve the original value from the servers's response.

       One use case of this control control may be to obtain replaced or deleted values of
       modified attributes or a copy of the entry being deleted.

       In addition to the constructor arguments described in Net::LDAP::Control the following are

       attrs => [ ATTR, ... ]
	   A list of attributes to be returned in the entry returned in the response control.

	   If absent, all attributes are returned.

	   Operational attributes may be included in the list by explicitly asking for them or by
	   using special "+" feature (provided the server supports this feature).

       As with Net::LDAP::Control each constructor argument described above is also available as
       a method on the object which will return the current value for the attribute if called
       without an argument, and set a new value for the attribute if called with an argument.

       In addition to these methods, the control also supports the following method:

       entry ()
	   Returns the entry from the response control in the response message to the LDAP
	   request that contained the request control.

	   The result is either a Net::LDAP::Entry object or undefined.
