NAME

ldifsort.pl - Sorts an LDIF file by the specified key attribute. The sorted version is written to standard output.

DESCRIPTION

Sorts an LDIF file by the specified key attribute.

SYNOPSIS

ldifsort.pl -k keyattr [-acdhn] file.ldif

-k

Specifies the key attribute for making sort comparisons. If 'dn' is specified, sorting is done by the full DN string, which can be composed of different attributes for different entries.

-a

Specifies that attributes within a given entry should also be sorted. This has the side effect of removing all comments and line continuations in the LDIF file.

-c

Specifies case-insensitive comparisons on the key attribute. This is the default behavior if 'dn' is passed as the argument to -k.

-d

Specifies that the key attribute is a DN. Comparisons are done on a DN-normalized version of attribute values. This is the default behavior if 'dn' is passed as the argument to -k.

-h

When the key attribute is a DN, sorts hierarchically superior values before subordinate values. For example, dc=example,dc=com is sorted before cn=test,dc=example,dc=com.

-n

Specifies numeric comparisons on the key attribute. Otherwise string comparisons are done.
