I don't see any description in the admin guide about how to convert a *.schema file into a

with a specially crafted slapd.conf file.

I would like to programatically do this -- my ability to vi two files and make identical
changes has been known to be fallable!

Suggestions?  Code examples?

Read schema/openldap.ldif

Thank you Howard.  I didn't think to go looking for that kind of documentation.

If anyone is interested, I've thrown together a short perl script that does what
schema/openldap.ldif suggests.  I believe it will generate an ldif file that is just as valid
as the schema file it is given ;-)  I have tested that hypothesis via ldapadd on a system that
I set up for cn=config use.

I am indeed interested to see that script, if you'd be willing to share it?
