      String strPath="LDAP://DC=onecity,DC=corp,DC=fabrikam,DC=com";
      if(args.Length>0)strPath=args[1];

      // Create a new DirectoryEntry with the given path.
      objDE=new DirectoryEntry(strPath);

      foreach(DirectoryEntry objChildDE in objDE.Children)
        Console.WriteLine(objChildDE.Path);
