LDAP_COMPARE(3) 								  LDAP_COMPARE(3)

NAME
       ldap_compare,  ldap_compare_s, ldap_compare_ext, ldap_compare_ext_s - Perform an LDAP com-
       pare operation.

LIBRARY
       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

SYNOPSIS
       #include <ldap.h>

       int ldap_compare_ext(
	      LDAP *ld,
	      char *dn,
	      char *attr,
	      const struct berval *bvalue,
	      LDAPControl **serverctrls,
	      LDAPControl **clientctrls,
	      int *msgidp );

       int ldap_compare_ext_s(
	      LDAP *ld,
	      char *dn,
	      char *attr,
	      const struct berval *bvalue,
	      LDAPControl **serverctrls,
	      LDAPControl **clientctrls );

DESCRIPTION
       The ldap_compare_ext_s() routine is  used  to  perform  an  LDAP  compare  operation  syn-
       chronously.   It takes dn, the DN of the entry upon which to perform the compare, and attr
       and value, the attribute description and value to compare to those found in the entry.  It
       returns	a code, which will be LDAP_COMPARE_TRUE if the entry contains the attribute value
       and LDAP_COMPARE_FALSE if it does not.  Otherwise, an error code is  returned  that  indi-
       cates the nature of the problem.  See ldap(3) for details.

       The  ldap_compare_ext()	routine  is  used  to  perform	an  LDAP  compare operation asyn-
       chronously.  It takes the same parameters as ldap_compare_ext_s(), but provides	the  mes-
       sage  id  of the request it initiated in the integer pointed to msgidp.	The result of the
       compare can be obtained by a subsequent call to ldap_result(3).

       Both routines allow server and client controls to  be  specified  to  extend  the  compare
       request.

DEPRECATED INTERFACES
       The  routines  ldap_compare()  and  ldap_compare_s()  are deprecated in favor of ldap_com-
       pare_ext() and ldap_compare_ext_s(), respectively.

       Deprecated interfaces generally remain in the library.  The macro LDAP_DEPRECATED  can  be
       defined to a non-zero value (e.g., -DLDAP_DEPRECATED=1) when compiling program designed to
       use deprecated interfaces.  It is recommended that developers  writing  new  programs,  or
       updating old programs, avoid use of deprecated interfaces.  Over time, it is expected that
       documentation (and, eventually, support) for deprecated interfaces to be eliminated.
