That I understand, but I still believe that some people want the
functionality I ask. Do you think the openldap-project at some point
will include a script/program which returns output without DN and maybe
with only values?
Maybe I'm missing something obvious here, but I really would like to
have a program which could ask a ldap-server and where I could use the
response directly in my mail-program, or where the response is just what
I asked for and not a lot more...
