       ldapcompare is a shell-accessible interface to the ldap_compare_ext(3) library call.

       ldapcompare opens a connection to an LDAP server, binds, and performs a  compare  using  specified  parameters.
       The  DN should be a distinguished name in the directory.  Attr should be a known attribute.  If followed by one
       colon, the assertion value should be provided as a string.  If followed by two colons, the base64  encoding  of
       the  value  is  provided.  The result code of the compare is provided as the exit code and, unless ran with -z,
       the program prints TRUE, FALSE, or UNDEFINED on standard output.

       -V[V]  Print version info.  If -VV is given, only the version information is printed.

       -d debuglevel
              Set the LDAP debugging level to debuglevel.  ldapcompare must be compiled with  LDAP_DEBUG  defined  for
              this option to have any effect.

       -n     Show  what  would  be done, but don't actually perform the compare.  Useful for debugging in conjunction
              with -v.

       -v     Run in verbose mode, with many diagnostics written to standard output.

       -z     Run in quiet mode, no output is written.  You must check the return status.  Useful in shell scripts.

       -M[M]  Enable manage DSA IT control.  -MM makes control critical.

       -x     Use simple authentication instead of SASL.

       -D binddn
              Use the Distinguished Name binddn to bind to the LDAP directory.  For SASL binds, the server is expected
              to ignore this value.

       -W     Prompt  for simple authentication.  This is used instead of specifying the password on the command line.

       -w passwd
              Use passwd as the password for simple authentication.

       -y passwdfile
              Use complete contents of passwdfile as the password for simple authentication.  Note that complete means
              that  any  leading  or trailing whitespaces, including newlines, will be considered part of the password
              and, unlike other software, they will not be stripped.  As a consequence, passwords stored in  files  by
              commands  like  echo(1) will not behave as expected, since echo(1) by default appends a trailing newline
              to the echoed string.  The recommended portable way to store a cleartext password in a file for use with
              this option is to use slappasswd(8) with {CLEARTEXT} as hash and the option -n.

       -H ldapuri
              Specify  URI(s)  referring to the ldap server(s); only the protocol/host/port fields are allowed; a list
              of URI, separated by whitespace or commas is expected.

       -h ldaphost
              Specify an alternate host on which the ldap server is running.  Deprecated in favor of -H.

       -p ldapport
              Specify an alternate TCP port where the ldap server is listening.  Deprecated in favor of -H.

       -P {2|3}
              Specify the LDAP protocol version to use.

       -e [!]ext[=extparam]

       -E [!]ext[=extparam]

              Specify general extensions with -e and compare extensions with -E.  ?!? indicates criticality.

              General extensions:
                [!]assert=<filter>    (an RFC 4515 Filter)
                !authzid=<authzid>    ("dn:<dn>" or "u:<user>")
                [!]bauthzid           (RFC 3829 authzid control)
                [!]postread[=<attrs>] (a comma-separated attribute list)
                [!]preread[=<attrs>]  (a comma-separated attribute list)
                abandon,cancel,ignore (SIGINT sends abandon/cancel,
                or ignores response; if critical, doesn't wait for SIGINT.
                not really controls)

              Compare extensions:

       -o opt[=optparam]

              Specify general options.

              General options:
                nettimeout=<timeout>  (in seconds, or "none" or "max")
                ldif-wrap=<width>     (in columns, or "no" for no wrapping)

       -O security-properties
              Specify SASL security properties.

       -I     Enable SASL Interactive mode.  Always prompt.  Default is to prompt only as needed.

       -Q     Enable SASL Quiet mode.  Never prompt.

       -N     Do not use reverse DNS to canonicalize SASL host name.

       -U authcid
              Specify the authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the ID depends on  the  actual  SASL  mechanism

       -R realm
              Specify  the  realm of authentication ID for SASL bind. The form of the realm depends on the actual SASL
              mechanism used.

       -X authzid
              Specify the requested authorization ID for SASL bind.  authzid must be one  of  the  following  formats:
              dn:<distinguished name> or u:<username>

       -Y mech
              Specify the SASL mechanism to be used for authentication. If it's not specified, the program will choose
              the best mechanism the server knows.

       -Z[Z]  Issue StartTLS (Transport Layer Security) extended operation. If you use -ZZ, the command  will  require
              the operation to be successful.

           ldapcompare "uid=babs,dc=example,dc=com"  sn:Jensen
           ldapcompare "uid=babs,dc=example,dc=com"  sn::SmVuc2Vu
       are all equivalent.

       Requiring  the value be passed on the command line is limiting and introduces some security concerns.  The com-
       mand should support a mechanism to specify the location (file name or URL) to read the value from.
