NAME

       ldap_extended_operation,  ldap_extended_operation_s  -  Extends the LDAP operations to the
       LDAP server.

LIBRARY

       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

SYNOPSIS

       #include <ldap.h>

       int ldap_extended_operation(
              LDAP *ld,
              const char *requestoid,
              const struct berval *requestdata,
              LDAPControl **sctrls,
              LDAPControl **cctrls,
              int *msgidp );

       int ldap_extended_operation_s(
              LDAP *ld,
              const char *requestoid,
              const struct berval *requestdata,
              LDAPControl **sctrls,
              LDAPControl **cctrls,
              char **retoidp,
              struct berval **retdatap );

DESCRIPTION

       The ldap_extended_operation_s() routine is used to synchronously perform an LDAP  extended
       operation.   It  takes requestoid, which points to a dotted-decimal OID string identifying
       the extended operation to perform. requestdata is  the  data  required  for  the  request,
       sctrls  is  an array of LDAPControl structures to use with this extended operation, cctrls
       is an array of LDAPControl structures that list the  client  controls  to  use  with  this
       extended operation.

       The  output  parameter  retoidp points to a dotted-decimal OID string returned by the LDAP
       server.  The memory used by the string should be freed with the ldap_memfree(3)  function.
       The  output parameter retdatap points to a pointer to a berval structure that contains the
       returned data.  If no data is returned by the server, the pointer is  set  this  to  NULL.
       The memory used by this structure should be freed with the ber_bvfree(3) function.

       The   ldap_extended_operation()  works  just  like  ldap_extended_operation_s(),  but  the
       operation is asynchronous.  It provides the message id of the request it initiated in  the
       integer  pointed  to  be  msgidp.  The result of this operation can be obtained by calling
       ldap_result(3).
