I do this via java and serialized objects, putting a
byte array into a string and storing that. In java the
object has to implement serializable to be stored. 

This has to do with java.schema . I'm not sure if perl
has a built-in schema. 

I also would like to know what attribute to use, such
as in inetOrgPerson, that would store files. 

I could post code if you'd like.
