=head1 NAME

ldifuniq.pl - Culls unique entries from a reference file with respect to a
comparison file.


ldifuniq.pl takes as input two LDIF files, a reference file and a comparison
file. Each entry in the reference file is compared to its counterpart in the 
comparison file. If it does not have a counterpart, or if the counterpart is 
not identical, the reference entry is printed to standard output. Otherwise no 
output is generated. This behavior is analogous to the -u option of the uniq
