RE: Net::LDAP::Entry - RFC
Message ID:
Agree, I believe everyone understood that Net::LDAP::LDIF supports no wrap as (wrap => X) where X <= 40 and that the goal was to enable Net::LDAP::Entry to use this ability via argument. I inspected your change and believe it is ideal as it would allow the caller to use any of the supported options in ::LDIF from ::Entry->ldif(...) method.

The POD for ::Entry may wish to make note of this in its POD for the ldif method.

Best Regards & Thanks Again,
Victor Burns

Net::LDAP::LDIF supports that for a very long time.

Excerpt from the man page:

wrap => 78 Number of columns where output line wrapping shall occur. Default is 78. 
           Setting it to 40 or lower inhibits wrapping.
