Net::LDAP::Extra(3)	       User Contributed Perl Documentation	      Net::LDAP::Extra(3)

       Net::LDAP::Extra -- Load extra Net::LDAP methods

	 use Net::LDAP::Extra qw(my_extn);

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

	 $ldap->my_extn( ... );

       "Net::LDAP::Extra" allows extra methods to be added to Net::LDAP.  Normally such methods
       would be added by sub-classing Net::LDAP, but this proves to get messy as different people
       write different additions and others want to use multiple of these sub-classes. Users end
       up having to create sub-classes of their own which inherit from all the extension sub-
       classes just so they can get all the features.

       "Net::LDAP::Extra" allows methods to be added directly to all Net::LDAP objects. This can
       be done by creating a class "Net::LDAP::Extra::name" which exports functions. A "use
       Net::LDAP::Extra qw(name)" will then make these functions available as a methods on all
       "Net::LDAP" objects.

       Care should be taken when choosing names for the functions to export to ensure that they
       do not clash with others.
