Net::LDAPI(3) use LDAP over a UNIX domain socket


use Net::LDAPI;
$ldapi = Net::LDAPI->new('/var/run/ldapi');
# alternate way
use Net::LDAP;
$ldapi = Net::LDAP->new('ldapi://');


Communicate using the LDAP protocol to a directory server using a UNIX domain socket. This mechanism is non-standard, UNIX-specific and not widely supported.

All the normal "Net::LDAP" methods can be used with a "Net::LDAPI" object; see Net::LDAP for details.


new ( [SOCKPATH] )
Create a new connection. SOCKPATH can optionally be specified, to specify the location of the UNIX domain socket to connect to.

If SOCKPATH is not given, the environment variable "LDAPI_SOCK" is evaluated, and if that does not exist, the value "/var/run/ldapi" is used.

See ``new'' in Net::LDAP for further details.
