I have lines of text like this:

LINE="dn:cn=mysdsp_rx8e,cn=oraclecontext,dc=hit,dc=com,dc=hkorclnetdescstring:(description=(address_list=(address=(protocol=tcp)(host=rx800e)(port=15023)))(connect_data(sid=mysdsp)))"

Pls help to write a perl program to:

perl get_data "${line}" "cn="    -> mysdsp_rx8e  oraclecontext   { notice 2 values return}
perl get_data "${line}" "host=" -> rx800e
perl get_data "${line}" "sid=" -> mysdsp
