       Dump and decode Directory Server replication change log

       A summary of options is included below.

       -c     Dump and interpret CSN only. This option can be used with or
              without -i option.

       -D bind-dn
              Directory server's bind DN. Default to "cn=Directory Manager" if
              the option is omitted.

       -h host
              Directory server's host. Default to the server where the script
              is running.

       -l     Preserve generated ldif.done files from changelogdir

       -i changelog‐ldif‐file‐with‐base64encoding
              If you already have a ldif-like changelog, but the changes in
              that file are encoded, you may use this option to decode that
              ldif-like changelog.

       -o output‐file
              Path name for the final result. Default to STDOUT if omitted.

       -p port
              Directory server's port. Default to 389.

       -P bind‐cert
              Pathname of binding certificate DB

       -r replica‐roots
              Specify replica roots whose changelog you want to dump. The
              replica roots may be separated by comma. All the replica roots
              would be dumped if the option is omitted.

       -v     Print the version of this script.

       -w bind‐password
              Password for the bind DN

       If you are not using -i option, the script should be run when the
       server is running, and from where the server's changelog directory is
