There was a package called duaperl made by
that was released more than a year ago, he said he would be back
with a new version soon but I haven't heard anything from him since then.
I have made some additions and changes to his code which I use in
my PH -> X.500 gateway as well as in a couple of handy scripts I use

At the same time I changed the name to rduaperl to distinguish it from
it's original.

If I get the time I will place it on our ftp archive tomorrow.
