NAME

       ldap_parse_reference - Extract referrals and controls from a reference message

LIBRARY

       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

SYNOPSIS

       #include <ldap.h>

       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.
