This is where apt-cache comes in handy:
apt-cache search ldap mail | wc -l
root@box:~# apt-cache show lbdb | grep ldap
Suggests: mutt | mutt-ja, procmail, finger, abook, libpalm-perl,
- m_ldap (query some LDAP server)
m_ldap This module queries an LDAP server using the Net::LDAP(3pm) Perl
modules from CPAN. It can be configured using an external
resource file /etc/lbdb_ldap.rc You can explicity define a LDAP query in
this file or you can use one or more of the predefined queries from the
%ldap_server_db in this file. For this you have to define a space
separated list of nicknames from entries in the variable LDAP_NICKS.
And a bug!
Finally, to use lbdbq from mutt, add the following line to your
set query_command="lbdbq ’%s’"
The command should be: set query_command="lbdbq %s"
which is correct in /usr/share/doc/lbdb/README.gz
I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god
than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other
possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.
