LDAP_FIRST_ATTRIBUTE(3) 	     Library Functions Manual		  LDAP_FIRST_ATTRIBUTE(3)

NAME
       ldap_first_attribute, ldap_next_attribute - step through LDAP entry attributes

SYNOPSIS
       #include <ldap.h>

       char *ldap_first_attribute(ld, entry, berptr)
       LDAP *ld;
       LDAPMessage *entry;
       BerElement **berptr;

       char *ldap_next_attribute(ld, entry, ber)
       LDAP *ld;
       LDAPMessage *entry;
       BerElement *ber;

DESCRIPTION
       The ldap_first_attribute() and ldap_next_attribute() routines are used to step through the
       attributes in an LDAP  entry.   ldap_first_attribute()  takes  an  entry  as  returned  by
       ldap_first_entry(3)  or	ldap_next_entry(3) and returns a pointer to character string con-
       taining the first attribute description in the entry.  ldap_next_attribute()  returns  the
       next attribute description in the entry.

       It  also  returns,  in berptr, a pointer to a BerElement it has allocated to keep track of
       its  current  position.	 This  pointer	should	be  passed   to   subsequent   calls   to
       ldap_next_attribute() and is used used to effectively step through the entry's attributes.
       The caller is solely responsible for freeing the BerElement pointed to by berptr  when  it
       is no longer needed by calling ber_free(3).  When calling ber_free(3) in this instance, be
       sure the second argument is 0.

       The attribute names returned are suitable for inclusion in a call to ldap_get_values(3) to
       retrieve the attribute's values.

ERRORS
       If  an error occurs, NULL is returned and the ld_errno field in the ld parameter is set to
       indicate the error.  See ldap_error(3) for a description of possible error codes.

NOTES
       The ldap_first_attribute() routine dyanamically allocated memory that must be freed by the
       caller via ldap_memfree(3).
