    Have a look at Net::LDAP. The code will look something like:

    use strict; use Net::LDAP; my $ldap = Net::LDAP->new($ldaphost); my $result = $ldap->search( base=>$groupdn,filter=>'(objectclass=*)',a +ttrs=>['member']); if ($result->code) { print $result->error."\n"; exit 1; } my $entry = $result->entry; my @members = $entry->get('member');

    Warning: Not tested.

    Update: added an error check.

      Why would someone post something that is not tested? Does it helps anyone?
        it helped me!

    Use Net::LDAP to do a search for all the member attritubes in the group. That should get you started well enough.

    You could have also typed 'LDAP' in the search box and clicked search ;-)
    my name's not Keith, and I'm not reasonable.
