X500::DN::Parser - Parse X500 Distinguished Names
use X500::DN::Parser; my($parser) = new X500::DN::Parser(\&errorInDN); my($dn, $genericDN, %RDN) = $parser -> parse('c=au;o=MagicWare;cn=Ron Savage', 'c', '[l]', 'o', '[ou]', 'cn');
Parse DNs where the caller knows the number of RDNs.
If $dn = 'c=au;o=MagicWare', then these key/values appear: 'c' => 'au', 'o' => 'MagicWare'
X500::DN::Parser, as you would install any perl module library, by running these commands:
perl Makefile.PL make make test make install
If you want to install a private copy of
X500::DN::Parser in your home directory, then you should try to produce the initial Makefile with something like this command:
perl Makefile.PL LIB=~/perl or perl Makefile.PL LIB=C:/Perl/Site/Lib
If, like me, you don't have permission to write man pages into unix system directories, use:
instead of make install. This option is secreted in the middle of p 414 of the second edition of the dromedary book.
X500::DN::Parser was written by Ron Savage in 1999.
