       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 output.

       -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  regis­
              tered with your Kerberos Domain Controller(s).

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

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

       -x     Use simple authentication instead of SASL.
              Use complete contents of passwdfile as the password
              for simple authentication.

       -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 listening.  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

       -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 u:<username>

       -Y mech
              Specify the SASL mechanism to be used for authenti­
              cation.  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.
