The -E option in ldapsearch is not mentioned in ldapsearch manual, as I have
tested on both openSuSE 10.2 and gentoo Linux. Unfortunately I don't know what
it means but it seems to be pretty useful and enabled extended search filter
like given in RFC 3876. Probably it means "extend filter", I guess.

An example of -E as being discussed on openldap-software list:

when I search with "cn=foo*", and entry has multiple "cn" values, like 


doing this search, it should only return

$ ldapsearch -E mv="(cn=foo*)"
