EXAMPLE	USAGE
   Apple Open Directory
	   my $ldap = Authen::Simple::LDAP->new(
	       host    => 'od.company.com',
	       basedn  => 'cn=users,dc=company,dc=com',
	       filter  => '(&(objectClass=inetOrgPerson)(objectClass=posixAccount)(uid=%s))'
	   );

   Microsoft Active Directory
	   my $ldap = Authen::Simple::LDAP->new(
	       host    => 'ad.company.com',
	       binddn  => 'proxyuser@company.com',
	       bindpw  => 'secret',
	       basedn  => 'cn=users,dc=company,dc=com',
	       filter  => '(&(objectClass=organizationalPerson)(objectClass=user)(sAMAccountName=%s))'
	   );

       Active Directory	by default does	not allow anonymous binds. It's
       recommended that	a proxy	user is	used that has sufficient rights	to
       search the desired tree and attributes.
