NAME
       Net::LDAP::FilterMatch - LDAP entry matching

SYNOPSIS
         use Net::LDAP::Entry;
         use Net::LDAP::Filter;
         use Net::LDAP::FilterMatch;

         my $entry = new Net::LDAP::Entry;
         $entry->dn("cn=dummy entry");
         $entry->add (
          'cn' => 'dummy entry',
          'street' => [ '1 some road','nowhere' ] );

         my @filters = (qw/(cn=dummy*)
                        (ou=*)
                        (&(cn=dummy*)(street=*road))
                        (&(cn=dummy*)(!(street=nowhere)))/);


         for (@filters) {
           my $filter = Net::LDAP::Filter->new($_);
           print $_,' : ', $filter->match($entry) ? 'match' : 'no match' ,"\n";
         }

ABSTRACT
       This extension of the class Net::LDAP::Filter provides entry matching
       functionality on the Perl side.

       Given an entry it will tell whether the entry matches the filter
       object.

       It can be used on its own or as part of a Net::LDAP::Server based LDAP
       server.

METHOD
       match ( ENTRY [ ,SCHEMA ] )
           Return whether ENTRY matches the filter object. If a schema object
           is provided, the selection of matching algorithms will be derived
           from schema.

           In case of error undef is returned.

       For approximate matching like (cn~=Schmidt) there are several modules
       that can be used. By default the following modules will be tried in
       this order:

         String::Approx
         Text::Metaphone
         Text::Soundex

       If none of these modules is found it will fall back on a simple regexp
       algorithm.

       If you want to specifically use one implementation only, simply do

         use Net::LDAP::FilterMatch qw(Text::Soundex);
