NAME
       Net::LDAP::Control::Sort - Server Side Sort (SSS) control object

SYNOPSIS
	use Net::LDAP::Control::Sort;
	use Net::LDAP::Constant qw(LDAP_CONTROL_SORTRESULT);

	$sort = Net::LDAP::Control::Sort->new(
	  order => "cn -phone"
	);

	$mesg = $ldap->search( @args, control => [ $sort ]);

	($resp) = $mesg->control( LDAP_CONTROL_SORTRESULT );

	print "Results are sorted\n"  if $resp and !$resp->result;

DESCRIPTION
       "Net::LDAP::Control::Sort" is a sub-class of Net::LDAP::Control.  It provides a class for
       manipulating the LDAP Server Side Sort (SSS) request control 1.2.840.113556.1.4.473 as
       defined in RFC-2891

       If the server supports sorting, then the response from a search operation will include a
       sort result control. This control is handled by Net::LDAP::Control::SortResult.

CONSTRUCTOR ARGUMENTS
       order
	   A string which defines how entries may be sorted. It consists of multiple directives,
	   spearated by whitespace. Each directive describes how to sort entries using a single
	   attribute. If two entries have identical attributes, then the next directive in the
	   list is used.

	   Each directive specifies a sorting order as follows

	     -attributeType:orderingRule

	   The leading "-" is optional, and if present indicates that the sorting order should be
	   reversed. "attributeType" is the attribute name to sort by. "orderingRule" is optional
	   and indicates the rule to use for the sort and should be valid for the given
	   "attributeType".

	   Any one attributeType should only appear once in the sorting list.

	   Examples

	     "cn"	  sort by cn using the default ordering rule for the cn attribute
	     "-cn"	  sort by cn using the reverse of the default ordering rule
	     "age cn"	  sort by age first, then by cn using the default ordering rules
	     "cn:1.2.3.4" sort by cn using the ordering rule defined as 1.2.3.4

METHODS
       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.
