ldapurl is a command that allows one to either compose or
decompose LDAP URIs.
When invoked with the -H option, ldapurl extracts the components
of the ldapuri option argument, unescaping hex-escaped chars as
required. It basically acts as a frontend to the
ldap_url_parse(3) call. Otherwise, it builds an LDAP URI based
on the components passed with the appropriate options, performing
the inverse operation. Option -H is incompatible with options
-a, -b, -E, -f, -H, -h, -p, -S, and -s.
Set a comma-separated list of attribute selectors.
Set the searchbase.
Specify general extensions with -e ´!´ indicates

not really controls)
Set URL extensions; incompatible with -H.
Set the URL filter. No particular check on conformity
with RFC 4515 LDAP filters is performed, but the value is
hex-escaped as required.
Specify URI to be exploded.
Set the host.
Set the TCP port.
Set the URL scheme. Defaults for other fields, like
ldapport, may depend on the value of scheme.
Specify the scope of the search to be one of base, one,
sub, or children to specify a base object, one-level,
subtree, or children search. The default is sub. Note:
children scope requires LDAPv3 subordinate feature
If the -H option is used, the ldapuri supplied is exploded in its
components, which are printed to standard output in an LDIF-like
Otherwise, the URI built using the values passed with the other
options is printed to standard output.
