.B attributeoptions [option-name]...
Define tagging attribute options or option tag/range prefixes.
Options must not end with `-', prefixes must end with `-'.
The `lang-' prefix is predefined.
If you use the
.B attributeoptions
directive, `lang-' will no longer be defined and you must specify it
explicitly if you want it defined.
An attribute description with a tagging option is a subtype of that
attribute description without the option.
Except for that, options defined this way have no special semantics.
Prefixes defined this way work like the `lang-' options:
They define a prefix for tagging options starting with the prefix.
That is, if you define the prefix `x-foo-', you can use the option
Furthermore, in a search or compare, a prefix or range name (with
a trailing `-') matches all options starting with that name, as well
as the option with the range name sans the trailing `-'.
That is, `x-foo-bar-' matches `x-foo-bar' and `x-foo-bar-baz'.
RFC2251 reserves options beginning with `x-' for private experiments.
Other options should be registered with IANA, see RFC3383 section 3.4.
OpenLDAP also has the `binary' option built in, but this is a transfer
option, not a tagging option.
