Database URIs


LDIF file database URI:





The Lightweight Directory Interchange Format (LDIF) is an ASCII based file format for representation of LDAP objects defined in RFC 2849. The ldiffile database driver allows reading objects from and appending objects to such an LDIF file.

The database URI is composed of the driver name ldiffile followed by a ":" character, followed by a file retriever specifier linking the database with a file.

The driver, however, is currently not fully RFC 2849 compliant, for instance it does not implement base64 encoding/decoding of non-ASCII-representable attribute values and it does not handle comments.
