Re: making ldapsearch not to split lines

I have bash script that does this:

The problem is that if the 'dn' line is too long, ldapsearch splits it
to several lines according to LDIF rules.

Is there any way to tell ldapsearch not to split lines (or does it
depends on server side?)

AFAIK there is not. And if got RFC 2849 right, there is no need for splitting, so I would also appreciate an optional parameter. (A fourth "-L" might be good for that purpose or an numerical operator to specify custom wrapping)

However, joining the lines is not that complicated.
