ldap_parse_sort_control - Decode the information returned from a search
operation that used a server-side sort control
OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)
int ldap_parse_sort_control(ld, ctrls, returnCode, attribute)
unsigned long *returnCode;
This function is used to parse the results returned in a search operation that
uses a server-side sort control.
It takes a null terminated array of LDAPControl structures usually
obtained by a call to the ldap_parse_result function. A returncode
which points to the sort control result code,and an array of LDAPControl
structures that list the client controls to use with the search. The
function also takes an out parameter attribute and if the sort
operation fails, the server may return a string that indicates the first
attribute in the sortKey list that caused the failure. If this parameter is
NULL, no string is returned. If a string is returned, the memory should be
freed by calling the ldap_memfree function.
