Re: (ITS#6194) Patch - Enhancement - provide LDIF support as libldif
The ldif code does not currently have knowledge of any of the higher
level LDAP data types such as LDAPMod or LDAPControl - some of the
proposals would have the ldif API return these objects - Do we really
want to introduce this higher level knowledge into the relatively low
level libldif, along with the dependency on libldap? I think in order
to do this properly, we would have to introduce a new LDAP API e.g.
ldap_mods_from_ldif(const char *ldifstr, LDAPMod***, LDAPControl***) or
something like that - something that would parse the given ldif record
into those higher level data types.
