One alternative solution is utilize on client ldap  browser with this
feature. What you want may be encontred in:
   * "Apache  Directory Studio" - http://directory.apache.org/studio/
- need java to work - have version for Windows and Linux;
   * "Ldap Admin" - http://ldapadmin.sourceforge.net/ - standalone
client - only have version for Windows - but works with "wine" in
