The ldap_parse_vlv_control is used to decode the information
returned from a search operation that used a VLV (virtual list
view)control. It takes a null terminated array of LDAPControl
structures, usually obtained by a call to the
ldap_parse_resultfunction, a target_pos which points to the list
index of the target entry. If this parameter is NULL, the target
position is not returned. The index returned is an approximation
of the position of the target entry. It is not guaranteed to be
exact. The parameter list_countp points to the server's estimate
of the size of the list. If this parameter is NULL, the size is
not returned. contextp is a pointer to the address of a berval
structure that contains a server-generated context identifier if
server returns one. If server does not return a context
identifier, the server returns a NULL in this parameter. If this
parameter is set to NULL, the context identifier is not returned.
You should use this returned context in the next call to create a
VLV control. When the berval structure is no longer needed, you
should free the memory by calling the ber_bvfree function.eerrcodep is an output parameter, which points to the result code
returned by the server. If this parameter is NULL, the result
code is not returned.
See ldap.h for a list of possible return codes.
