Net::LDAP::Filter - representation of LDAP filters SYNOPSIS
use Net::LDAP::Filter; $filter = Net::LDAP::Filter->new( $filter_str ); DESCRIPTION
The Net::LDAP::Filter object lets you directly manipulate LDAP filters without worrying about the string representation and all the associated escaping mechanisms. CONSTRUCTOR
new ( FILTER ) Create a new object and parse FILTER. METHODS
parse ( FILTER ) Parse FILTER. The next call to ber will return this filter encoded. as_string Return the filter in text form. print ( [ FH ] ) Print the text representation of the filter to FH, or the currently selected output handle if FH is not given. FILTER SYNTAX
Below is the syntax for a filter given in RFC 4515 filter = "(" filtercomp ")" filtercomp = and / or / not / item and = "&" filterlist or = "|" filterlist not = "!" filter filterlist = 1*filter item = simple / present / substring / extensible simple = attr filtertype value filtertype = equal / approx / greater / less equal = "=" approx = "~=" greater = ">=" less = "<=" extensible = attr [":dn"] [":" matchingrule] ":=" value / [":dn"] ":" matchingrule ":=" value present = attr "=*" substring = attr "=" [initial] any [final] initial = value any = "*" *(value "*") final = value attr = AttributeDescription from Section 4.1.4 of RFC 4511 matchingrule = MatchingRuleId from Section 4.1.8 of RFC 4511 value = AttributeValue from Section 4.1.5 of RFC 4511 Special Character encodings --------------------------- * 2a, * ( 28, ( ) 29, ) 5c, \ NUL 0 SEE ALSO

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' ," "; } 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); SEE ALSO
