marcos has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have to write a cgi script that has to access a LDAP Server (specifically a Netscape LDAP Server). The script must perform some LDAP search and/or modify.
AFAIK there are two perl modules to interface with LDAP server: perl-ldap-0.19 and Net-LDAPapi-1.42. I played a little with perl-ldap-0.19, but before starting serious development I would like to here someone else experience. Did anyone here ever used these modules? Do you have suggestion?
