No::Worries::DN(3)    User Contributed Perl Documentation   No::Worries::DN(3)

NAME
       No::Worries::DN - Distinguished Names handling without worries

SYNOPSIS
	 use No::Worries::DN qw(dn_parse dn_string);

	 $dn = dn_parse("/C=US/O=Acme Corporation/CN=John Doe");
	 $string = dn_string($dn, No::Worries::DN::FORMAT_JAVA);

DESCRIPTION
       This module eases Distinguished Names (DNs) handling by providing
       convenient functions to parse and convert DNs from and to different
       formats.	All the	functions die()	on error.

FUNCTIONS
       This module provides the	following functions (none of them being
       exported	by default):

       dn_parse(STRING)
	   parse a string containing DN	information and	return an array
	   reference

       dn_string(DN, FORMAT)
	   convert the given parsed DN (an array reference) into a string of
	   the given format, this is somehow the opposite of dn_parse()

FORMATS
       Here are	the supported formats:

       No::Worries::DN::FORMAT_RFC2253
	   this	is the format defined by RFC 2253, for instance: "CN=John
	   Doe,O=Acme Corporation,C=US"

       No::Worries::DN::FORMAT_JAVA
	   this	is a variant of	RFC 2253, with extra spaces, for instance:
	   "CN=John Doe, O=Acme	Corporation, C=US"

       No::Worries::DN::FORMAT_OPENSSL
	   this	is the default format used by OpenSSL, for instance:
	   "/C=US/O=Acme Corporation/CN=John Doe"
