       ldapcompare - LDAP compare tool

       ldapcompare  [-n] [-v] [-z] [-M[M]] [-d debuglevel] [-D binddn] [-W] [-w passwd] [-y pass-
       wdfile]	[-H ldapuri]  [-h ldaphost]   [-p ldapport]   [-P {2|3}]   [-e [!]ext[=extparam]]
       [-E [!]ext[=extparam]]  [-O security-properties]  [-I]  [-Q]  [-U authcid] [-R realm] [-x]
       [-X authzid] [-Y mech] [-Z[Z]] DN {attr:value | attr::b64value}

       ldapcompare is a shell-accessible interface to the ldap_compare_ext(3) library call.

       ldapcompare opens a connection to an LDAP server, binds,  and  performs	a  compare  using
       specified  parameters.	 The  DN  should  be a distinguished name in the directory.  Attr
       should be a known attribute.  If followed by one colon, the assertion value should be pro-
       vided  as  a  string.  If followed by two colons, the base64 encoding of the value is pro-
       vided.  The result code of the compare is provided as the exit code and, unless	ran  with
       -z, the program prints TRUE, FALSE, or UNDEFINED on standard output.

       -n     Show what would be done, but don't actually perform the compare.	Useful for debug-
	      ging in conjunction with -v.

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

       -z     Run in quiet mode, no output is written.	You must check the return status.  Useful
	      in shell scripts.

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

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

       -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.
	      Note  that  complete means that any leading or trailing whitespaces, including new-
	      lines, will be considered part of the password and,  unlike  other  software,  they
	      will not be stripped.  As a consequence, passwords stored in files by commands like
	      echo(1) will not behave as expected, since echo(1) by default  appends  a  trailing
	      newline  to  the	echoed string.	The recommended portable way to store a cleartext
	      password in a file for use with this option is to use slappasswd(8)  with  {CLEART-
	      EXT} as hash and the option -n.

       -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 search extensions with  -E.   '!'	indicates

	      General extensions:
		[!]assert=<filter>   (an RFC 4515 Filter)
		[!]authzid=<authzid> ("dn:<dn>" or "u:<user>")
		[!]postread[=<attrs>]	     (a comma-separated attribute list)
		[!]preread[=<attrs>] (a comma-separated attribute list)
		abandon, cancel (SIGINT sends abandon/cancel; not really controls)

	      Search extensions:
		[!]domainScope				     (domain scope)
		[!]mv=<filter>				     (matched values filter)
		[!]pr=<size>[/prompt|noprompt]	     (paged results/prompt)
		[!]sss=[-]<attr[:OID]>[/[-]<attr[:OID]>...]  (server side sorting)
		[!]subentries[=true|false]	     (subentries)
		[!]sync=ro[/<cookie>]			     (LDAP Sync refreshOnly)
			rp[/<cookie>][/<slimit>]     (LDAP Sync refreshAndPersist)

       -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.

       -U authcid
	      Specify  the  authentication  ID	for  SASL bind. The form of the ID 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.

	   ldapcompare "uid=babs,dc=example,dc=com"  sn:Jensen
	   ldapcompare "uid=babs,dc=example,dc=com"  sn::SmVuc2Vu
       are all equivalent.

       Requiring the value be passed on the command line is limiting and introduces some security
       concerns.   The	command  should support a mechanism to specify the location (file name or
       URL) to read the value from.
