       ldapcompare - LDAP compare tool

       ldapcompare   [-n]   [-v]   [-z]	  [-k]	[-K]  [-M[M]]  [-d debuglevel]
       [-D binddn] [-W] [-w passwd] [-y passwdfile] [-H ldapuri] [-h ldaphost]
       [-p ldapport]  [-P 2|3] [-O security-properties] [-I] [-Q] [-U authcid]

       attr::b64value >

       ldapcompare  is	a  shell-accessible  interface	to the ldap_compare(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 provided as a string.  If
       followed by two colons, the base64 encoding of the value is provided.

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

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

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

       -k     Use Kerberos IV authentication instead of simple authentication.
	      It is assumed that you already  have  a  valid  ticket  granting
	      ticket.	ldapcompare must be compiled with Kerberos support for
	      this option to have any effect.

       -K     Same as -k, but only does step 1 of the Kerberos IV bind.	  This
	      is   useful   when  connecting  to  a  slapd  and	 there	is  no
	      x500dsa.hostname principal registered with your Kerberos	Domain

       -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

       -x     Use simple authentication instead of SASL.

       -D binddn
	      Use the Distinguished Name binddn to bind to the LDAP directory.

       -W     Prompt for simple authentication.	 This is used instead of spec‐
	      ifying 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

       -H ldapuri
	      Specify URI(s) referring to the ldap server(s).

       -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  listen‐
	      ing.  Deprecated in favor of -H.

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

       -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 proxy authorization ID for SASL bind.	 authzid  must
	      be  one  of  the	following  formats: dn:<distinguished name> or

       -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 suc‐

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

       When -z is used, exit status is either 5 if the compare is false, or  6
       when the compare is true.  Errors result in other non-zero values.
       When  -z	 is  not used, exit status is zero if no errors occur.	Errors
       result in a non-zero exit status and a diagnostic message being written
       to standard error.

       Should have a way to specify a url for options or for large binary file
