ldapsearch fails with limit exceeded

ldapsearch returns max. 2000 items, hot honouring the
Size limit exceeded (4)
This problem and a possible solution have been proposed already some years ago at:

Is it possible to ask openldap get [0..500] then [501..600]... etc?

If you want to toy with paged results (elective) extension to LDAP,
you might try 2.2 (currently in beta). ....

My current ldapsearch :

ldapsearch: @(#) $OpenLDAP: ldapsearch 2.2.26 (Jun 26 2006 13:03:11) $
       (LDAP library: OpenLDAP 20226)

seems to contain some support for this:
root@de70171c:/home# type ldapsearch
ldapsearch is hashed (/usr/bin/ldapsearch)
root@de70171c:/home# strings /usr/bin/ldapsearch|grep paged
            [!]pr=<size>[/prompt|noprompt]   (paged results/prompt)
Invalid entries estimate in paged results response.
# with pagedResults %scontrol: size=%d

man ldapsearch does not mention anything about it, so does ldapsearch support this "paged results"? If so, how can I make use of it?
