NAME¶ldap_extended_operation, ldap_extended_operation_s - Extends the LDAP operations to the LDAP server.
LIBRARY¶OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)
LDAP *ld, const char *requestoid, const struct berval *requestdata, LDAPControl **sctrls, LDAPControl **cctrls, int *msgidp );
LDAP *ld, const char *requestoid, const struct berval *requestdata, LDAPControl **sctrls, LDAPControl **cctrls, char **retoidp, struct berval **retdatap );
DESCRIPTION¶The ldap_extended_operation_s() routine is used to synchronously perform an LDAP extended operation. It takes requestoid, which points to a dotted-decimal OID string identifying the extended operation to perform. requestdata is the data required for the request, sctrls is an array of LDAPControl structures to use with this extended operation, cctrls is an array of LDAPControl structures that list the client controls to use with this extended operation.
The output parameter retoidp points to a dotted-decimal OID string returned by the LDAP server. The memory used by the string should be freed with the ldap_memfree(3) function. The output parameter retdatap points to a pointer to a berval structure that contains the returned data. If no data is returned by the server, the pointer is set this to NULL. The memory used by this structure should be freed with the ber_bvfree(3) function.
The ldap_extended_operation() works just like ldap_extended_operation_s(), but the operation is asynchronous. It provides the message id of the request it initiated in the integer pointed to be msgidp. The result of this operation can be obtained by calling ldap_result(3).
