NAME

Net::LDAP::Message - Message response from LDAP server  

SYNOPSIS

 use Net::LDAP;

 

DESCRIPTION

Net::LDAP::Message is a base class for the objects returned by the Net::LDAP methods abandon, add, bind, compare, delete, modify, moddn, search and unbind.

The sub-class Net::LDAP::Search returned by search also defines many methods.

If the Net::LDAP object is in async mode then all these methods, except "done" and "mesg_id", will cause a wait until the request is completed.
