Net::LDAP::Control::Relax(3) LDAPv3 Relax control object


use Net::LDAP;
use Net::LDAP::Control::Relax;
$ldap = Net::LDAP->new( "" );
$relax = Net::LDAP::Control::Relax->new();
$msg = $ldap->modify( 'dc=sub,dc=mydomain,dc=eg",
changes => [

"Net::LDAP::Control::Relax" provides an interface for the creation and manipulation of objects that represent the "Relax" control as described by draft-zeilenga-ldap-relax-03.txt

The presence of the Relax control in an LDAP update request indicates the server temporarily relax X.500 model constraints during performance of the directory update.

The control is appropriate for all LDAP update requests, including add, delete, modify, and modifyDN (rename) [RFC4511].

Its criticality is always set to TRUE, and no value.

There is no corresponding response control.


Since the "Relax" control does not have any values only the constructor arguments described in Net::LDAP::Control are supported


As there are no additional values in the control only the methods in Net::LDAP::Control are available for "Net::LDAP::Control::Relax" objects.
