ldapvi is an interactive LDAP client for Unix terminals. Using it, you can update LDAP entries with a text editor.

Think of it as vipw(1) for LDAP.

New features:
· SASL support (thanks to Perry Nguyen)
new command line arguments -I, -Q, -O, -R, -Y, -X, -U, as well as --bind and --bind-dialog
new keys 'B' and '*'
incompatible change: renamed --root to --read and dropped its short name -R
· new value encodings md5, smd5, sha1, ssha1 (thanks to Michael Hanselmann)
incompatible change: value encoding md5 renamed to cryptmd5
new configure option --with-libcrypto
· extended ldapvi syntax with change records
new key 'V'
· new command line arguments --in, --out, --delete, --rename
· LDIF support in the editor
new command line arguments --ldif, --ldapvi, --ldapsearch, --ldapmodify, --ldapdelete, --ldapmoddn, --add
incompatible change: old command line argument --add renamed to --empty
· UTF-8 support; new command line option --encoding
· use libreadline to read the user name
· support for configuration files ~/.ldapvirc or /etc/ldapvi.conf in ldapvi syntax, taking precedence over .ldaprc and /etc/ldap.conf if present

· show optional attributes as comments
new command line argument -m (--may)
new key '+'
