       ldapfilter.conf - configuration file for LDAP filtering routines


       The ldapfilter.conf file contains information used by the LDAP filtering routines.

       Blank  lines  and  lines  that begin with a hash character (#) are treated as comments and
       ignored. The configuration information consists of lines that contain one to five  tokens.
       Tokens  are separated by white space, and double quotes can be used to include white space
       inside a token.

       The file consists of a sequence of one or more filter sets. A filter  set  begins  with	a
       line containing a single token called a tag.

       The  filter  set  consists  of a sequence of one or more filter lists. The first line in a
       filter list must contain four or five tokens: the value pattern,  the  delimiter  list,	a
       filtertemplate,	a match description, and an optional search scope. The value pattern is a
       regular expression that is matched against the value passed to the LDAP	library  call  to
       select the filter list.

       The  delimiter  list is a list of the characters (in the form of a single string) that can
       be used to break the value into distinct words.

       The filter template is used to construct an LDAP filter (see description below)

       The match description is returned to the caller along with a filter as  a  piece  of  text
       that  can be used to describe the sort of LDAP search that took place. It should correctly
       compete both of the following phrases: "One match description match was found for ..." and
       "Three match description matches were found for...."

       The  search  scope is optional, and should be one of base, onelevel, or subtree. If search
       scope is not provided, the default is subtree.

       The remaining lines of the filter list should contain two or three tokens, a  filter  tem-
       plate, a match description and an optional search scope.

       The  filter template is similar in concept to a printf(3C) style format string. Everything
       is taken literally except for the character sequences:

       %v	Substitute the entire value string in place of the %v.

       %v$	Substitute the last word in this field.

       %vN	Substitute word N in this field (where N is a single digit 1-9). Words	are  num-
		bered from left to right within the value starting at 1.

       %vM-N	Substitute  the  indicated sequence of words where M and N are both single digits

       %vN-	Substitute word N through the last word in value where N is again a single  digit

       Example 1 An LDAP Filter Configuration File

       The  following LDAP filter configuration file contains two filter sets, example1 and exam-
       ple2 onelevel, each of which contains four filter lists.

	 # ldap filter file
	 "="		    " "     "%v"		    "arbitrary filter"
	 "[0-9][0-9-]*"    " "	   "(telephoneNumber=*%v)" "phone number"

	 "@"		    " "     "(mail=%v)" 	    "email address"

	 "^.[. _].*"	    ". _"   "(cn=%v1* %v2-)"	    "first initial"

	 ".*[. _].$"	    ". _"   "(cn=%v1-*)"	    "last initial"

	 "[. _]"	    ". _"   "(|(sn=%v1-)(cn=%v1-))"	   "exact"
				    "(|(sn~=%v1-)(cn~=%v1-))"	   "approximate"

	 ".*"		    ". "    "(|(cn=%v1)(sn=%v1)(uid=%v1))" "exact"
				    "(|(cn~=%v1)(sn~=%v1))"	   "approximate"

	 "example2 onelevel"
	 "^..$"  " "   "(|(o=%v)(c=%v)(l=%v)(co=%v))"	    "exact" "onelevel"
		       "(|(o~=%v)(c~=%v)(l~=%v)(co~=%v))"   "approximate"

	 " "	 " "   "(|(o=%v)(l=%v)(co=%v)"	     "exact"	    "onelevel"
		       "(|(o~=%v)(l~=%v)(co~=%v)"    "approximate"  "onelevel"

	 "."	" "   "(associatedDomain=%v)"	    "exact"	   "onelevel"

	 ".*"	 " "   "(|(o=%v)(l=%v)(co=%v)"	     "exact"	    "onelevel"
		       "(|(o~=%v)(l~=%v)(co~=%v)"    "approximate"  "onelevel"
