NAME
       Net::LDAP::Control::EntryChange - LDAPv3 Entry Change Notification
       control object

SYNOPSIS
        use Net::LDAP;
        use Net::LDAP::Control::PersistentSearch;
        use Net::LDAP::Constant qw(LDAP_CONTROL_ENTRYCHANGE);

        $ldap = Net::LDAP->new( "ldap.mydomain.eg" );

        $persist = Net::LDAP::Control::PersistentSearch->new( changeTypes => 15,
                                                              changesOnly => 1,
                                                              returnECs => 1 );

        $srch = $ldap->search( base     => "cn=People,dc=mydomain,dc=eg",
                               filter   => "(objectClass=person)",
                               callback => \&process_entry, # call for each entry
                               control  => [ $persist ] );

        die "error: ",$srch->code(),": ",$srch->error()  if ($srch->code());

        sub process_entry {
          my $message = shift;
          my $entry = shift;
          my ($control) = $message->control(LDAP_CONTROL_ENTRYCHANGE);

          print $control->changeType()."\t".$entry->dn()."\n";
        }

DESCRIPTION
       "Net::LDAP::Control::EntryChange" provides an interface for the
       creation and manipulation of objects that represent the
       "EntryChangeNotification" control as described by
       draft-smith-psearch-ldap-01.txt.

CONSTRUCTOR ARGUMENTS
       In addition to the constructor arguments described in
       Net::LDAP::Control the following are provided.

       changeType
           An integer value telling the type of LDAP operation that the entry
           has undergone.  It is one of the following values (which represent
           the LDAP operations indicated next to them):

           1 = add
           2 = delete
           4 = modify
           8 = modDN
       previousDN
           When changeType is 8 (for modDN) this parameter tells the entry's
           DN before the modDN operation.  In all other cases this value is
           not defined.

       changeNumber
           This is the change number according to
           <draft-good-ldap-changelog-03.txt> assigned by a server for the
           change.  If a server supports an LDAP Change Log it should include
           this field.

       Usually you do not need to create a "Net::LDAP::Control::EntryChange"
       control yourself because it is provided by the server in response to an
       option with the "Net::LDAP::Control::PersistentSearch" control.

METHODS
       As with Net::LDAP::Control each constructor argument described above is
       also available as a method on the object which will return the current
       value for the attribute if called without an argument, and set a new
       value for the attribute if called with an argument.
