       ldap_compare,  ldap_compare_s,  ldap_compare_ext,  ldap_compare_ext_s  -  Perform  an LDAP
       compare operation.


       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)


       #include <ldap.h>

       int ldap_compare_ext(
              LDAP *ld,
              char *dn,
              char *attr,
              const struct berval *bvalue,
              LDAPControl **serverctrls,
              LDAPControl **clientctrls,
              int *msgidp );

       int ldap_compare_ext_s(
              LDAP *ld,
              char *dn,
              char *attr,
              const struct berval *bvalue,
              LDAPControl **serverctrls,
              LDAPControl **clientctrls );


       The  ldap_compare_ext_s()  routine  is  used  to  perform  an   LDAP   compare   operation
       synchronously.   It  takes  dn, the DN of the entry upon which to perform the compare, and
       attr and value, the attribute description and value to  compare  to  those  found  in  the
       entry.   It  returns  a  code,  which  will be LDAP_COMPARE_TRUE if the entry contains the
       attribute value and LDAP_COMPARE_FALSE if it  does  not.   Otherwise,  an  error  code  is
       returned that indicates the nature of the problem.  See ldap(3) for details.

       The   ldap_compare_ext()   routine   is   used   to  perform  an  LDAP  compare  operation
       asynchronously.  It takes the same parameters as ldap_compare_ext_s(),  but  provides  the
       message  id  of  the request it initiated in the integer pointed to msgidp.  The result of
       the compare can be obtained by a subsequent call to ldap_result(3).

       Both routines allow server and client controls to  be  specified  to  extend  the  compare


       The   routines   ldap_compare()   and   ldap_compare_s()   are   deprecated  in  favor  of
       ldap_compare_ext() and ldap_compare_ext_s(), respectively.

       Deprecated interfaces generally remain in the library.  The macro LDAP_DEPRECATED  can  be
       defined to a non-zero value (e.g., -DLDAP_DEPRECATED=1) when compiling program designed to
       use deprecated interfaces.  It is recommended that developers  writing  new  programs,  or
       updating old programs, avoid use of deprecated interfaces.  Over time, it is expected that
       documentation (and, eventually, support) for deprecated interfaces to be eliminated.
