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

NAME
       Net::LDAP::Search - Object returned by Net::LDAP search method

SYNOPSIS
	use Net::LDAP;

	$mesg = $ldap->search( @search_args );

	@entries = $mesg->entries;

DESCRIPTION
       A Net::LDAP::Search object is returned from the search method of a Net::LDAP object. It is
       a container object which holds the results of the search.

METHODS
       Net::LDAP::Search inherits from Net::LDAP::Message, and so supports all methods defined in
       Net::LDAP::Message.

       as_struct ( )
	   Returns a reference to a HASH, where the keys are the DNs of the results and the
	   values are HASH references. These second level HASHes hold the attributes such that
	   the keys are the attribute names, in lowercase, and the values are references to an
	   ARRAY holding the values.

	   This method will block until the whole search request has finished.

       count ( )
	   Returns the number of entries returned by the server.

	   This method will block until the whole search request has finished.

       entry ( INDEX )
	   Return the N'th entry (zero-based), which will be a Net::LDAP::Entry object.  If INDEX
	   is greater or equal than the total number of entries returned then "undef" will be
	   returned.

	   This method will block until the search request has returned enough entries.

       entries ( )
	   Return an array of Net::LDAP::Entry objects that were returned from the server.

	   This method will block until the whole search request has finished.

       pop_entry ( )
	   Pop an entry from the internal list of Net::LDAP::Entry objects for this search. If
	   there are no more entries then "undef" is returned.

	   This call will block if the list is empty, until the server returns another entry.

       references ( )
	   Return a list of references that the server returned. This will be a list of
	   Net::LDAP::Reference objects.

       sorted ( )
	   Return a list Net::LDAP::Entry objects, sorted by their DNs.

	   The sorting is done on the client side using Perl's alphanumerical sort operator
	   "cmp".

       sorted ( ATTR, ... )
	   Return a list of Net::LDAP::Entry objects, sorted by the specified attributes. The
	   attributes are compared in the order specified, each only being compared if all the
	   prior attributes compare equal.

	   The sorting is done on the client side using Perl's alphanumerical sort operator
	   "cmp".

       shift_entry ( )
	   Shift an entry from the internal list of Net::LDAP::Entry objects for this search. If
	   there are no more entries then "undef" is returned.

	   This call will block if the list is empty, until the server returns another entry.
