line break in cis? (LDIF format)


I am pretty new with ldap and just tried to get my first directory
working with the default slapd configuration. The man page says that
the default attribute type is "cis", so I conclude that the attribute
"postalAddress" is of type cis. I would like to have the
postalAddress attribute value multiple lines. How can I put
a multiple line cis in LDIF format?

In "ldaptemplates.conf" I saw the lines

# valid types are:
#    cis        - case ignore string
#    mls        - multiline string     

which suggests that type cis is not appropriate for a multiple
line string. But it seems that "mls" is not a valid type for slapd.conf.

Thank you very much for your help!
