NAME

       ldap_delete,  ldap_delete_s,  ldap_delete_ext,  ldap_delete_ext_s - Perform an LDAP delete
       operation.

LIBRARY

       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

SYNOPSIS

       #include <ldap.h>

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

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

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

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

DESCRIPTION

       The ldap_delete_s() routine 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() routine 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(3).

       The  ldap_delete_ext()  routine   allows   server   and client controls to be specified to
       extend the delete request. This routine is asynchronous like ldap_delete(), but its return
       value  is  an  LDAP  error  code.  It  stores the message id of the request in the integer
       pointed to by msgidp.

       The ldap_delete_ext_s() routine is the synchronous version of ldap_delete_ext().  It  also
       returns an LDAP error code indicating success or failure of the operation.

ERRORS

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

       ldap_delete_ext()  and  ldap_delete_ext_s()  return some Non-zero value if something  went
       wrong initiating the request, else return 0.
