Use of uninitialized value in string eq at /usr/bin/shelldap line 1470 for hasSubordinate attribute

Reported by: carnil Owned by: mahlon
Priority: minor Milestone:
Version: Keywords:



In Debian there was reported that shelldap may trow out 'uninitalized value' warnings on comparison if hasSubordinate is TRUE [1].

(line 1470 is not true in original shelldap, and comes as shelldap in Debian has already the patch applied for ticket #8)

[1] http://bugs.debian.org/639506

# if this entry is a container for other entries, append a
# trailing slash.
if ( $e->get_value('hasSubordinates') eq 'TRUE' ) {

$dn .= '/';


According to [2] the attibute can be either TRUE, or FALSE or the third case could be that the attribute is absent.

Should thus this first check if attribute is present, and then only compare the value?
