NAME


ldap_delete, ldap_delete_s, ldap_delete_ext, ldap_delete_ext_s - LDAP
delete operation

SYNOPSIS


cc[ flag... ] file... -lldap[ library... ]
#include <lber.h>
#include <ldap.h>

int ldap_delete(LDAP *ld, char *dn);


int ldap_delete_s(LDAP *ld, char *dn);


int ldap_delete_ext(LDAP *ld, char *dn, LDAPControl **serverctrls,
LDAPControl **clientctrls, int *msgidp);


int ldap_delete_ext_s(LDAP *ld, char *dn, LDAPControl **serverctrls,
LDAPControl **clientctrls);


DESCRIPTION


The ldap_delete_s() function is used to perform an LDAP delete operation
synchronously. It takes dn, the DN of the entry to be deleted. It
returns an LDAP error code, indicating the success or failure of the
operation.


The ldap_delete() function is used to perform an LDAP delete operation
asynchronously. It takes the same parameters as ldap_delete_s(), but
returns the message id of the request it initiated. The result of the
delete can be obtained by a subsequent call to ldap_result(3LDAP).


The ldap_delete_ext() function initiates an asynchronous delete
operation and returns LDAP_SUCCESS if the request was successfully sent
to the server, or else it returns a LDAP error code if not (see
ldap_error(3LDAP)). If successful, ldap_delete_ext() places the message
id of the request in *msgidp. A subsequent call to ldap_result(), can be
used to obtain the result of the add request.


The ldap_delete_ext_s() function initiates a synchronous delete
operation and as such returns the result of the operation itself.

ERRORS


ldap_delete_s() returns an LDAP error code which can be interpreted by
calling one of ldap_perror(3LDAP) functions. ldap_delete() returns -1 if
something went wrong initiating the request. It returns the non-negative
message id of the request if things were successful.
