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

Net::LDAP::posixAccount - Creates new Net::LDAP::Entry objects for a posixAccount entry.

Version 0.0.2

Quick summary of what the module does.
Perhaps a little code snippet.
    use Net::LDAP::posixAccount;
    #Initiates the module with a base DN of 'ou=users,dc=foo'.
    my $foo = Net::LDAP::posixAccount->new({baseDN=>'ou=user,dc=foo'});
    #creates a new entry with the minimum requirements
    my $entry = $foo->create({name=>'vvelox', gid=>'404', uid=>'404'});
    #add it using $ldap, a previously created Net::LDAP object
    $entry->update($ldap);
