NAME

       ldap_parse_vlv_control - Decode the information returned from a search operation that used
       a VLV (virtual list view) control

LIBRARY

       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

SYNOPSIS

       #include <ldap.h>

       int ldap_parse_vlv_control( ld, ctrlp, target_posp, list_countp, contextp, errcodep )
       LDAP *ld;
       LDAPControl **ctrlp;
       unsigned long *target_posp, *list_countp;
       struct berval **contextp;
       int *errcodep;

DESCRIPTION

       The ldap_parse_vlv_control is used to  decode  the  information  returned  from  a  search
       operation  that used a VLV (virtual list view)control. It takes a null terminated array of
       LDAPControl structures, usually obtained by a call  to  the  ldap_parse_resultfunction,  a
       target_pos  which points to the list index of the target entry. If this parameter is NULL,
       the target position is not returned.  The  index  returned  is  an  approximation  of  the
       position  of the target entry. It is not guaranteed to be exact. The parameter list_countp
       points to the server's estimate of the size of the list. If this parameter  is  NULL,  the
       size  is  not  returned.  contextp  is a pointer to the address of a berval structure that
       contains a server-generated context identifier if server returns one. If server  does  not
       return  a  context  identifier,  the  server  returns  a  NULL  in this parameter. If this
       parameter is set to NULL, the context identifier is not  returned.  You  should  use  this
       returned context in the next call to create a VLV control. When the berval structure is no
       longer needed, you should free the memory by calling the ber_bvfree function.e errcodep is
       an  output  parameter,  which  points  to  the result code returned by the server. If this
       parameter is NULL, the result code is not returned.

       See ldap.h for a list of possible return codes.
