Re: ldapsearch truncates at ~80 columns

It's possible to implement a filter that converts from the output of `ldapsearch`
to valid LDIF that isn't wrapped, or is wrapped to a different line width.  I
attach an example, based on PerLDAP.

use Mozilla::LDAP::LDIF 0.07 qw(read_file_URL_or_name);
# ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/directory/perldap/

my $in  = new Mozilla::LDAP::LDIF (*STDIN, \&read_file_URL_or_name, "comments");
my $out = new Mozilla::LDAP::LDIF (*STDOUT, [max_line=>shift]);
while (($record) = get $in (1)) {
    put $out ($record);
