Tags: utilities sysadmin shell ldap perl unix console linux
This is an LDAP shell. I wrote it a long time ago, actually, but have only recently gotten around to making it release-worthy.

It is composed of two parts: Net::LDAP::Config, and ldapsh.

Net::LDAP::Config is a library for simplifying and centralizing access to your LDAP repositories. Instead of having every single script ask for your ldap server and search base, or have it hard coded, you can simply use this library:

my $config = Net::LDAP::Config->new("default");
