Thanks Jarbas. Someone on Usenet recommended ldapvi, which is a simple standalone unix program which opens your entire addressbook (or indeed any set of search results) in your default text editor, lets you edit and then commits the changes. Works like a dream - just thought others might like to know if they have changes to make to multiple entries.
