ldifde - an improvement on lpd.exe

Strange, not blogged for nearly a year - must be too busy at work!

Also strange that my last blog is a precursor to this.  LDP.exe is a great gui interface for quick ldap queries, but i wanted to automate, script and get output to a file.

Enter ldifde.

with a few switches it allows for simple ldap queries to be scripted and give txt files with results.

You can also determine which attributes you want returned from the AD objects.

Currently using for a monthly review of AD groups.
