NAME
       Net::LDAP::FilterMatch - LDAP entry matching

SYNOPSIS
	 use Net::LDAP::Entry;
	 use Net::LDAP::Filter;
	 use Net::LDAP::FilterMatch;

	 my $entry = new Net::LDAP::Entry;
	 $entry->dn("cn=dummy entry");
	 $entry->add (
	  'cn' => 'dummy entry',
	  'street' => [ '1 some road','nowhere' ] );

	 my @filters = (qw/(cn=dummy*)
			(ou=*)
			(&(cn=dummy*)(street=*road))
			(&(cn=dummy*)(!(street=nowhere)))/);

	 for (@filters) {
	   my $filter = Net::LDAP::Filter->new($_);
	   print $_,' : ', $filter->match($entry) ? 'match' : 'no match' ,"\n";
	 }

ABSTRACT
       This extension of the class Net::LDAP::Filter provides entry matching functionality on the
       Perl side.

       Given an entry it will tell whether the entry matches the filter object.

       It can be used on its own or as part of a Net::LDAP::Server based LDAP server.

METHOD
       match ( ENTRY [ ,SCHEMA ] )
	   Return whether ENTRY matches the filter object. If a schema object is provided, the
	   selection of matching algorithms will be derived from schema.

	   In case of error undef is returned.

       For approximate matching like (cn~=Schmidt) there are several modules that can be used. By
       default the following modules will be tried in this order:

	 String::Approx
	 Text::Metaphone
	 Text::Soundex

       If none of these modules is found it will fall back on a simple regexp algorithm.

       If you want to specifically use one implementation only, simply do

	 use Net::LDAP::FilterMatch qw(Text::Soundex);
