http://python-ldap.sourceforge.net/docs.shtml contains some links to
introductions.

This command above boils down to:

l=ldap.initialize("ldap://myldaphost.mydomain.com")
l.simple_bind_s("CN=ldapuser,CN=Users,DC=mydomain,DC=com","secret")
r = l.search_s(
  "CN=ANYCOMPUTER,CN=Computers,DC=mydomain,DC=com",
  ldap.SCOPE_SUBTREE, # this is the default of ldapsearch
  "(objectClass=*)"
)

But you really should learn more about it by diving into:

http://python-ldap.sourceforge.net/doc/python-ldap/ldap-objects.html

Ciao, Michael.
