NAME

       ldap_is_ldap_url,  ldap_url_parse,  ldap_free_urldesc  -  LDAP  Uniform  Resource  Locator
       routines

LIBRARY

       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

SYNOPSIS

       #include <ldap.h>

       int ldap_is_ldap_url( const char *url )

       int ldap_url_parse( const char *url, LDAPURLDesc **ludpp )

       typedef struct ldap_url_desc {
           char *      lud_scheme;     /* URI scheme */
           char *      lud_host;       /* LDAP host to contact */
           int         lud_port;       /* port on host */
           char *      lud_dn;         /* base for search */
           char **     lud_attrs;      /* list of attributes */
           int         lud_scope;      /* a LDAP_SCOPE_... value */
           char *      lud_filter;     /* LDAP search filter */
           char **     lud_exts;       /* LDAP extensions */
           int         lud_crit_exts;  /* true if any extension is critical */
           /* may contain additional fields for internal use */
       } LDAPURLDesc;

       void ldap_free_urldesc( LDAPURLDesc *ludp );

DESCRIPTION

       These routines support the use of LDAP URLs (Uniform Resource Locators) as detailed in RFC
       4516.  LDAP URLs look like this:

         ldap://hostport/dn[?attrs[?scope[?filter[?exts]]]]

       where:
         hostport is a host name with an optional ":portnumber"
         dn is the search base
         attrs is a comma separated list of attributes to request
         scope is one of these three strings:
           base one sub (default=base)
         filter is filter
         exts are recognized set of LDAP and/or API extensions.

       Example:
         ldap://ldap.example.net/dc=example,dc=net?cn,sn?sub?(cn=*)

       URLs  that  are  wrapped  in  angle-brackets and/or preceded by "URL:" are also tolerated.
       Alternative LDAP schemes such as ldaps:// and ldapi://  may  be  parsed  using  the  below
       routines as well.

       ldap_is_ldap_url()  returns  a non-zero value if url looks like an LDAP URL (as opposed to
       some other kind of URL).  It  can  be  used  as  a  quick  check  for  an  LDAP  URL;  the
       ldap_url_parse() routine should be used if a more thorough check is needed.

       ldap_url_parse()  breaks  down  an  LDAP  URL passed in url into its component pieces.  If
       successful, zero is returned, an LDAP URL description is allocated, filled in,  and  ludpp
       is set to point to it.  If an error occurs, a non-zero URL error code is returned.

       ldap_free_urldesc()  should  be  called  to free an LDAP URL description that was obtained
       from a call to ldap_url_parse().
