The ldap_modrdn() and ldap_modrdn_s() routines perform an LDAP
modify RDN operation. They both take dn, the DN of the entry
whose RDN is to be changed, and newrdn, the new RDN to give the
entry. The old RDN of the entry is never kept as an attribute of
the entry. ldap_modrdn() is asynchronous, returning the message
id of the operation it initiates. ldap_modrdn_s() is
synchronous, returning the LDAP error code indicating the success
or failure of the operation. Use of these routines is
deprecated. Use the versions described below instead.
The ldap_modrdn2() and ldap_modrdn2_s() routines also perform an
LDAP modify RDN operation, taking the same parameters as above.
In addition, they both take the deleteoldrdn parameter which is
used as a boolean value to indicate whether the old RDN values
should be deleted from the entry or not.
The synchronous (_s) versions of these routines return an LDAP
error code, either LDAP_SUCCESS or an error if there was trouble.
The asynchronous versions return -1 in case of trouble, setting
the ld_errno field of ld. See ldap_error(3) for more details.
