       ldapdelete is a shell-accessible interface to the ldap_delete_ext(3) library call.

       ldapdelete  opens  a connection to an LDAP server, binds, and deletes one or more entries.
       If one or more DN arguments are provided,  entries  with  those	Distinguished  Names  are
       deleted.   Each DN should be provided using the LDAPv3 string representation as defined in
       RFC 4514.  If no DN arguments are provided, a list of DNs is read from standard input  (or
       from file if the -f flag is used).

       -V[V]  Print version info.  If -VV is given, only the version information is printed.

       -d debuglevel
	      Set  the	LDAP  debugging  level	to  debuglevel.  ldapdelete must be compiled with
	      LDAP_DEBUG defined for this option to have any effect.

       -n     Show what would be done, but don't actually delete entries.  Useful  for	debugging
	      in conjunction with -v.

       -v     Use verbose mode, with many diagnostics written to standard output.

       -c     Continuous  operation  mode.  Errors  are  reported,  but ldapdelete will  continue
	      with  deletions.	 The default is to exit after reporting an error.

       -f file
	      Read a series of DNs from file, one per line, performing an LDAP delete for each.

       -r     Do a recursive delete.  If the DN specified isn't a leaf,  its  children,  and  all
	      their  children  are deleted down the tree.  No verification is done, so if you add
	      this switch, ldapdelete will happily delete large portions of your tree.	Use  with

       -z sizelimit
	      Use  sizelimit  when searching for children DN to delete, to circumvent any server-
	      side size limit.	Only useful in conjunction with -r.

       -M[M]  Enable manage DSA IT control.  -MM makes control critical.

       -x     Use simple authentication instead of SASL.

       -D binddn
	      Use the Distinguished Name binddn to bind to the LDAP directory.	For  SASL  binds,
	      the server is expected to ignore this value.

       -W     Prompt  for simple authentication.  This is used instead of specifying the password
	      on the command line.

       -w passwd
	      Use passwd as the password for simple authentication.

       -y passwdfile
	      Use complete contents of passwdfile as the password for simple authentication.

       -H ldapuri
	      Specify URI(s) referring to the ldap server(s); only the protocol/host/port  fields
	      are allowed; a list of URI, separated by whitespace or commas is expected.

       -h ldaphost
	      Specify an alternate host on which the ldap server is running.  Deprecated in favor
	      of -H.

       -p ldapport
	      Specify an alternate TCP port where the ldap server is  listening.   Deprecated  in
	      favor of -H.

       -P {2|3}
	      Specify the LDAP protocol version to use.

       -e [!]ext[=extparam]

       -E [!]ext[=extparam]

	      Specify  general	extensions  with -e and delete extensions with -E.  '!' indicates

	      General extensions:
		[!]assert=<filter>    (an RFC 4515 Filter)
		!authzid=<authzid>    ("dn:<dn>" or "u:<user>")
		[!]bauthzid	      (RFC 3829 authzid control)
		[!]postread[=<attrs>] (a comma-separated attribute list)
		[!]preread[=<attrs>]  (a comma-separated attribute list)
		abandon,cancel,ignore (SIGINT sends abandon/cancel,
		or ignores response; if critical, doesn't wait for SIGINT.
		not really controls)

	      Delete extensions:

       -o opt[=optparam]

	      Specify general options.

	      General options:
		nettimeout=<timeout>  (in seconds, or "none" or "max")
		ldif-wrap=<width>     (in columns, or "no" for no wrapping)

       -O security-properties
	      Specify SASL security properties.

       -I     Enable SASL Interactive mode.  Always prompt.  Default is to prompt only as needed.

       -Q     Enable SASL Quiet mode.  Never prompt.

       -N     Do not use reverse DNS to canonicalize SASL host name.

       -U authcid
	      Specify the authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the  identity  depends  on
	      the actual SASL mechanism used.

       -R realm
	      Specify the realm of authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the realm depends
	      on the actual SASL mechanism used.

       -X authzid
	      Specify the requested authorization ID for SASL bind.  authzid must be one  of  the
	      following formats: dn:<distinguished name> or u:<username>

       -Y mech
	      Specify  the  SASL  mechanism to be used for authentication. If it's not specified,
	      the program will choose the best mechanism the server knows.

       -Z[Z]  Issue StartTLS (Transport Layer Security) extended operation. If you use	-ZZ,  the
	      command will require the operation to be successful.

       The following command:

	   ldapdelete "cn=Delete Me,dc=example,dc=com"

       will  attempt  to  delete  the entry named "cn=Delete Me,dc=example,dc=com".  Of course it
       would probably be necessary to supply authentication credentials.

       Exit status is 0 if no errors occur.  Errors result in a non-zero exit status and a  diag-
       nostic message being written to standard error.
