CentOS 7.0 - man page for ldbedit (centos section 1)

LDBEDIT(1)			   System Administration tools			       LDBEDIT(1)

NAME
       ldbedit - Edit LDB databases using your preferred editor

SYNOPSIS
       ldbedit [-?] [--usage] [-s base|one|sub] [-b basedn] [-a] [-e editor] [-H LDB-URL]
	       [expression] [attributes...]

DESCRIPTION
       ldbedit is a utility that allows you to edit LDB entries (in tdb files, sqlite files or
       LDAP servers) using your preferred editor. ldbedit generates an LDIF file based on your
       query, allows you to edit the LDIF, and then merges that LDIF back into the LDB backend.

OPTIONS
       -?, --help
	   Show list of available options, and a phrase describing what that option does.

       --usage
	   Show list of available options. This is similar to the help option, however it does
	   not provide any description, and is hence shorter.

       -H <ldb-url>
	   LDB URL to connect to. For a tdb database, this will be of the form tdb://filename.
	   For a LDAP connection over unix domain sockets, this will be of the form
	   ldapi://socket. For a (potentially remote) LDAP connection over TCP, this will be of
	   the form ldap://hostname. For an SQLite database, this will be of the form
	   sqlite://filename.

       -s one|sub|base
	   Search scope to use. One-level, subtree or base.

       -a, -all
	   Edit all records. This allows you to apply the same change to a number of records at
	   once. You probably want to combine this with an expression of the form
	   "objectclass=*".

       -e editor, --editor editor
	   Specify the editor that should be used (overrides the VISUAL and EDITOR environment
	   variables). If this option is not used, and neither VISUAL nor EDITOR environment
	   variables are set, then the vi editor will be used.

       -b basedn
	   Specify Base Distinguished Name to use.

       -v, --verbose
	   Make ldbedit more verbose about the operations that are being performed. Without this
	   option, ldbedit will only provide a summary change line.

ENVIRONMENT
       LDB_URL
	   LDB URL to connect to. This can be overridden by using the -H command-line option.)

       VISUAL and EDITOR
	   Environment variables used to determine what editor to use. VISUAL takes precedence
	   over EDITOR, and both are overridden by the -e command-line option.

VERSION
       This man page is correct for version 1.1 of LDB.
