DESCRIPTION


The ldap_first_attribute() function gets the value of the first attribute
in an entry.


The ldap_first_attribute() function returns the name of the first
attribute in the entry. To get the value of the first attribute, pass the
attribute name to the ldap_get_values() function or to the
ldap_get_values_len() function.


The ldap_next_attribute() function gets the value of the next attribute
in an entry.


After stepping through the attributes, the application should call
ber_free() to free the BerElement structure allocated by the
ldap_first_attribute() function if the structure is other than NULL.

ERRORS

parameter is set to indicate the error. See ldap_error(3LDAP) for a
