NAME
       ldap_rename, ldap_rename_s - Renames the specified entry.

LIBRARY
       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

SYNOPSIS
       #include <ldap.h>

       int ldap_rename( ld, dn, newrdn, newparent, deleteoldrdn, sctrls[], cctrls[], msgidp );
       LDAP *ld;
       const char *dn, *newrdn, *newparent;
       int deleteoldrdn;
       LDAPControl *sctrls[], *cctrls[];
       int *msgidp);

       int ldap_rename_s( ld, dn, newrdn, newparent, deleteoldrdn, sctrls[], cctrls[] );
       LDAP *ld;
       const char *dn, *newrdn, *newparent;
       int deleteoldrdn;
       LDAPControl *sctrls[], *cctrls[];

DESCRIPTION
       These routines are used to perform a LDAP rename operation.  The function changes the leaf
       component of an entry's distinguished name and  optionally moves the entry to a new parent
       container.  The ldap_rename_s performs a rename operation synchronously.  The method takes
       dn, which points to the distinguished name of the entry whose attribute is being compared,
       newparent,the  distinguished  name  of  the entry's new parent. If this parameter is NULL,
       only the RDN is changed.  The root DN is specified by passing a zero  length  string,  "".
       deleteoldrdn  specifies whether the old RDN should be retained or deleted.  Zero indicates
       that the old RDN should be retained. If you choose this option, the attribute will contain
       both  names (the old and the new).  Non-zero indicates that the old RDN should be deleted.
       serverctrls points to an array of LDAPControl structures that list the client controls  to
       use  with  this	extended  operation.  Use NULL to specify no client controls. clientctrls
       points to an array of LDAPControl structures that list the client controls to use with the
       search.

       ldap_rename  works  just like ldap_rename_s, but the operation is asynchronous. It returns
       the message id of the request it initiated. The result of this operation can  be  obtained
       by calling ldap_result(3).

ERRORS
       ldap_rename()  returns  -1  in  case  of  error	initiating  the request, and will set the
       ld_errno field in the ld parameter to indicate the  error.   ldap_rename_s()  returns  the
       LDAP error code resulting from the rename operation.
