NAME
       ldif - convert arbitrary data to LDIF format

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/sbin/ldif [-b] attr-name

DESCRIPTION
       This program is used to convert arbitrary data to the LDAP Directory
       Interchange Format (LDIF) described in ldif(5).  ldif reads data from
       standard input, converts it, and writes the corresponding LDIF output
       to standard output.  The output is suitable for use as a line in an
       ldif(5) file.

       Without the -b flag, ldif considers its input a sequence of values to
       be converted, one per line. With the -b flag, ldif considers its input
       as a single raw binary value to be converted. This can be useful when
       converting binary data such as a photo or audio attribute.

       See "The SLAPD and SLURPD Administrator's Guide" for more details on
       using this program.

OPTIONS
       -b     This option specifies that ldif should interpret its input as a
              single binary value for conversion.  Otherwise, it interprets it
              as a sequence of lines, with each line containing a single
              value.
