Discerning data types with OpenLDAP 1.2.x
I'm writting an LDAP v2 client application, and I wonder about the
best way to discrimine what data type is behind every attribute. Can I
somehow ask to the LDAP server how should I process the values (as
integer values, as strings, as dates, etc.) in order to print them? If
not, I assume my best chance is to define an user-extensible list with
the more common attributes (cn, sn, organization...) and its type;
when the attribute is not found in that list, I would simply print it
in hexadecimal. Am I right?
Of course, I'm using OpenLDAP (v1.2.7) client libraries. Thanks in
