Re: Net::LDAP problem

Ok, here goes some code, I am only including the ldap related lines:

#get a uid and gid that isnt used
$ldap=Net::LDAP->new($server) or die "$@";
$ldap->bind(dn => $rootdn, password => $dnpassword) or die "bind";

$result=$ldap->search (
	base	=> "dc=life,dc=uiuc,dc=edu",
	scope	=> "sub",
	filter	=> "uid=*",
	attrs	=> "*"
ldap code after this to find an unused uid# and gid# from above search this 

...other stuff not using ldap, crypting password, figuring days since epoch, 

print "$dn\n";

  dn => $dn,
  attr => [
	'uid' => $uid,
	'cn' => $geckos,
	'objectClass' => ['account','posixAccount','top','shadowAccount'],
	'shadowMax' => $shadowMax,
	'shadowWarning' => $shadowWarning,
	'loginShell' => $shell,
	'uidNumber' => $id,
	'gidNumber' => $id,
	'homeDirectory' => $homedirectory,
	'geckos' => $geckos,
	'userPassword' => $password,
	'shadowLastChange' => $days

die "unable to add, errorcode #".$res->code() if $res->code();

It will print the dn as it should, then afterward, the script hangs on trying 
to do the add and will not do anything, so it cannot even get to my error 
checking line.  If need be, I can attach a full copy of my code if it would 
be helpful for someone to see it.
