NAME

       X500::RDN - handle X.500 RDNs (Relative Distinguished Names), parse and format them

SYNOPSIS

         use X500::RDN;

         my $rdn = new X500::RDN ('c'=>'DE');
         my $c = $rdn->getAttributeValue ('c');

DESCRIPTION

       This module handles X.500 RDNs (Relative Distinguished Names).  This is a supporting
       module for X500::DN.

   Methods
       ·   $object = new X500::RDN ('type'=>'value', 'type'=>'value', ...);

           Creates an RDN object from argument pairs, each pair an attribute type and value.
           With more than one pair as arguments, you will get a multi-valued RDN.

       ·   $object->isMultivalued();

           Returns whether the RDN is multi-valued.

       ·   $object->getAttributeTypes();

           Returns the RDN's attribute types, a list of strings.

       ·   $object->getAttributeValue (type);

           Returns the RDN attribute's value.

       ·   $object->getRFC2253String();

           Returns the RDN as a string formatted according to RFC 2253 syntax.

       ·   $object->getX500String();

           Returns the RDN as a string formatted according to X.500 syntax.  NOTE: This is a
           hack, there is no definition for a X.500 string syntax!?

       ·   $object->getOpenSSLString();

           Returns the RDN as a string formatted according to one of openssl's syntaxes.  Croaks
           on multi-valued RDNs.

   EXPORT
       None.
