The ldap_delete_s() routine is used to perform an LDAP delete
operation synchronously. It takes dn, the DN of the entry to be
deleted. It returns an LDAP error code, indicating the success or
failure of the operation.
The ldap_delete() routine is used to perform an LDAP delete operation
asynchronously. It takes the same parameters as ldap_delete_s(), but
returns the message id of the request it initiated. The result of the
delete can be obtained by a subsequent call to ldap_result(3).
The ldap_delete_ext() routine allows server and client controls to
be specified to extend the delete request. This routine is
asynchronous like ldap_delete(), but its return value is an LDAP
error code. It stores the message id of the request in the integer
pointed to by msgidp.
The ldap_delete_ext_s() routine is the synchronous version of
ldap_delete_ext(). It also returns an LDAP error code indicating
success or failure of the operation.
ldap_delete_s() returns an LDAP error code which can be interpreted
by calling one of ldap_perror(3) and friends. ldap_delete() returns
-1 if something went wrong initiating the request. It returns the
non-negative message id of the request if things went ok.
ldap_delete_ext() and ldap_delete_ext_s() return some Non-zero value
if something went wrong initiating the request, else return 0.
