      When exporting an LDIF file, Directory Studio automatically inserts a version line followed by a blank line at the top of the file, before the first record. There should be an option to suppress any version or comment lines when exporting the LDIF, similar to the -LLL option in the OpenLDAP version of ldapsearch. This only became an issue for me because I had Perl scripts which parsed the LDIF files created by Directory Studio, and the insertion of the version line at the top of the file broke the scripts. I was able to fix them easily, but I was surprised that this was added to Directory Studio with no way to disable it.
