EXPORTS

       open([Host]) -> {ok, Handle} | {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 Handle = handle()

              Setup a connection to an LDAP server, the HOST's are tried in order.

       open([Host], [Option]) -> {ok, Handle} | {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 Handle = handle()
                 Option  =  {port,  integer()} | {log, function()} | {timeout, integer()} | {ssl,
                 boolean()} | {sslopts, list()}

              Setup a connection to an LDAP server, the HOST's are tried in order.

              The log function takes three arguments, fun(Level, FormatString, [FormatArg]) end.

              Timeout set the maximum time in milliseconds that each server request may take.

       close(Handle) -> ok

              Types:

                 Handle = handle()

              Shutdown the connection.

       start_tls(Handle, Options) -> ok | {error,Error}

              Same as start_tls(Handle, Options, infinity)

       start_tls(Handle, Options, Timeout) -> ok | {error,Error}

              Types:

                 Handle = handle()
                 Options = ssl:ssl_options()
                 Timeout = inifinity | positive_integer()

              Upgrade the connection associated with Handle to a tls connection if possible.

              The upgrade is done in two phases: first the server  is  asked  for  permission  to
              upgrade. Second, if the request is acknowledged, the upgrade is performed.

              Error  responese from phase one will not affect the current encryption state of the
              connection. Those responses are:

                tls_already_started:
                  The connection is already encrypted. The connection is not affected.

                {response,ResponseFromServer}:
                  The upgrade was refused by the LDAP server. The ResponseFromServer is  an  atom
                  delivered  byt  the  LDAP  server  explained  in  section  2.3 of rfc 2830. The
                  connection is not affected, so it is still un-encrypted.

              Errors in the seconde phase will however end the connection:

                Error:
                  Any error responded from ssl:connect/3

       simple_bind(Handle, Dn, Password) -> ok | {error, Reason}

              Types:

                 Handle = handle()

                 Dn = string()

              Add an entry. The entry must not exist.

                add(Handle,
                    "cn=Bill Valentine, ou=people, o=Example Org, dc=example, dc=com",
                     [{"objectclass", ["person"]},
                      {"cn", ["Bill Valentine"]},
                      {"sn", ["Valentine"]},
                      {"telephoneNumber", ["545 555 00"]}]
                   )

                 NewSupDN = string()

              Modify the DN of an entry. DeleteOldRDN indicates whether the current RDN should be
              removed  after  operation.  NewSupDN should be "" if the RDN should not be moved or
              the new parent which the RDN will be moved to.
