In LDIF files, a line can be broken and continued (called folded) by indenting the continued portion of the line by exactly one space. For example, the following two statements are identical:
dn: cn=Jake Lupinski,dc=example,dc=com
dn: cn=Jake Lup
It is not required to break and continue LDIF lines. However, doing so may improve the readability of the LDIF file. The usual convention is that an LDIF file does not contain more than 78 columns of text.
