Re: Extra output from ldap_search ?

Hi Peter,
this is hardly the solution I am looking for.
I am not using ACI's at the moment and I don't see the need, really. Your 
solution might work but... well. Not elegant.

How do others do that ?

I am sure you have webinterfaces to your directory. How do you make sure that 
you display 'the right thing' to users? Is it hardcoded in your app ?
