LDAP_PARSE_REFERENCE(3)    Library Functions Manual    LDAP_PARSE_REFERENCE(3)



NAME
       ldap_parse_reference - Extract referrals and controls from a reference
       message

LIBRARY
       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

SYNOPSIS
       #include <&lt;ldap.h>&gt;

       int ldap_parse_reference( LDAP *ld, LDAPMessage *reference,
            char ***referralsp, LDAPControl ***serverctrlsp,
            int freeit )

DESCRIPTION
       The ldap_parse_reference() routine is used to extract referrals and
       controls from a reference message.  The reference parameter is a
       reference message as returned by a call to ldap_first_reference(3),
       ldap_next_reference(3), ldap_first_message(3), ldap_next_message(3), or
       ldap_result(3).

       The referralsp parameter will be filled in with an allocated array of
       character strings. The strings are copies of the referrals contained in
       the parsed message. The array should be freed by calling
       ldap_value_free(3). If referralsp is NULL, no referrals are returned.
       If no referrals were returned, *referralsp is set to NULL.

       The serverctrlsp parameter will be filled in with an allocated array of
       controls copied from the parsed message. The array should be freed by
       calling ldap_controls_free(3). If serverctrlsp is NULL, no controls are
       returned.  If no controls were returned, *serverctrlsp is set to NULL.

       The freeit parameter determines whether the parsed message is freed or
       not after the extraction. Any non-zero value will make it free the
       message. The ldap_msgfree(3) routine can also be used to free the
       message later.

ERRORS
       Upon success LDAP_SUCCESS is returned. Otherwise the values of the
       referralsp and serverctrlsp parameters are undefined.
