Title : Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP):
Syntaxes and Matching Rules
Author(s) : K. Dally, S. Legg
Filename : draft-ietf-ldapbis-syntaxes-09.txt
Pages : 53
Date : 2004-10-8
Each attribute stored in a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol
(LDAP) directory, and whose values may be transfered in the LDAP
protocol, has a defined syntax which constrains the structure and
format of its values. The comparison semantics for values of a
syntax are not part of the syntax definition but are instead provided
through separately defined matching rules. Matching rules specify an
argument, an assertion value, which also has a defined syntax. This
document defines a base set of syntaxes and matching rules for use in
defining attributes for LDAP directories.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
