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

LIBRARY         top

       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

SYNOPSIS         top

       #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         top

       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).
