LDAP_EXTENDED_OPERATION(3)                          LDAP_EXTENDED_OPERATION(3)



NAME
       ldap_extended_operation, ldap_extended_operation_s - Extends the LDAP operations to the LDAP server.

LIBRARY
       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

SYNOPSIS
       #include <ldap.h>

       int ldap_extended_operation(
              LDAP *ld,
              const char *requestoid,
              const struct berval *requestdata,
              LDAPControl **sctrls,
              LDAPControl **cctrls,
              int *msgidp );

       int ldap_extended_operation_s(
              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. request-
       data  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)  func-
       tion.

       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).
