 Use Perl grep tool for custom LDAP search

Many organizations implement some form of LDAP service for storing enterprise directory information. Existing search options allow for a range of lookups based on where certain data is stored in the directory. This article allows you to combine the power of regular expressions with the grep tool to create your own custom LDAP search capability. In the spirit of successful search engines, such as Google, we'll change the search format from a LDAP-style query string to simple and powerful keyword matching and results display.
