LDAP Data Interchange Format (LDIF)

LDIF is a text-based format for describing directory service entities and their attributes. Using LDIF format you can move information from one directory to another with commands such as ldapadd and ldapmodify. The following are examples of LDIF format for each service. Use ldaplist(1) with the-l option to display the following information.
