ldapexop issues the LDAP extended operation specified by oid or one
of the special keywords whoami, cancel, or refresh.
Additional data for the extended operation can be passed to the
server using data or base-64 encoded as b64data in the case of oid,
or using the additional parameters in the case of the specially named
extended operations above.
Please note that ldapexop behaves differently for the same extended
operation when it was given as an OID or as a specialliy named

-n Show what would be done but don't actually do it. Useful for
debugging in conjunction with -v.
-v Run in verbose mode, with many diagnostics written to standard
Read operations from file.
-x Use simple authentication instead of SASL.
Use the Distinguished Name binddn to bind to the LDAP
-W Prompt for simple authentication. This is used instead of
specifying the password on the command line.
Use passwd as the password for simple authentication.
Use complete contents of passwdfile as the password for simple

prompt only as needed.
-Q Enable SASL Quiet mode. Never prompt.
-N Do not use reverse DNS to canonicalize SASL host name.
