I hope that this will lead to some discussion on better utf-8 support.
Well, UTF8 is the only charset thats defined for LDAP, so I don't think
that the support for UTF8 could be better.
It seems that ldapsearch does'nt like dn's with utf-8 chars
Thats defined behaviour according to
- maybe you want to comment on that.
* If it really has to be this way then ldap* -D args (and others)
accept the base64 form.
Ok, this might be nifty for someone that hasn't got an UTF8-Terminal but
has to search for UTF8-characters.
* This behaviour should at least have an off switch, so the user can
on the output form.
Since ldapsearch outputs "LDIF", it should stay true to the LDIF spec.
You can use Perl or any other Programming Language to build a tool that
can output something other than LDIF.
