Re: slapcat doesn't support subtree dump (ITS#2376)


At the time he posted the location of his patch, he asked specifically if 
this should be committed in, and never received a reply, which is probably 
why it hasn't been done.

No, but it was easy to implement.  Here is a patch:


Description, from the slapcat(8) manpage:
     -s subtree-dn
          Only dump entries in the subtree specified by this  DN.
          Implies `-b subtree-dn' if no -b or -n option is given.
