.SH DESCRIPTION
.LP
.B Slapacl
is used to check the behavior of the slapd in verifying access to data
according to ACLs, as specified in 
.BR slapd.access (5).
It opens the
.BR slapd.conf (5)
configuration file, reads in the 
.B access
and
.B defaultaccess
directives, and then parses the 
.B attr
29
30
31
list given on the command-line; if none is given, access to the
.B entry
pseudo-attribute is tested.
