       ldap_first_entry,  ldap_next_entry,  ldap_count_entries	-  LDAP  result entry parsing and
       counting routines

       #include <ldap.h>

       ldap_count_entries(ld, result)
       LDAP *ld;
       LDAPMessage *result;

       LDAPMessage *ldap_first_entry(ld, result)
       LDAP *ld;
       LDAPMessage *result;

       LDAPMessage *ldap_next_entry(ld, entry)
       LDAP *ld;
       LDAPMessage *entry;

       These routines are used to parse results received from ldap_result(3) or  the  synchronous
       LDAP search operation routines ldap_search_s(3) and ldap_search_st(3).

       The  ldap_first_entry()	routine  is used to retrieve the first entry in a chain of search
       results.  It takes the result as returned by a call to ldap_result(3) or  ldap_search_s(3)
       or ldap_search_st(3) and returns a pointer to the first entry in the result.

       This  pointer should be supplied on a subsequent call to ldap_next_entry() to get the next
       entry, the result of which should be supplied to the next call to ldap_next_entry(),  etc.
       ldap_next_entry()  will	return NULL when there are no more entries.  The entries returned
       from these  calls  are  used  in  calls	to  the  routines  described  in  ldap_get_dn(3),
       ldap_first_attribute(3), ldap_get_values(3), etc.

       A  count  of  the  number  of  entries  in  the	search	result can be obtained by calling

       If an error occurs in ldap_first_entry() or ldap_next_entry(), NULL is  returned  and  the
       ld_errno  field	in  the ld parameter is set to indicate the error.  If an error occurs in
       ldap_count_entries(),  -1  is  returned,  and  ld_errno	 is   set   appropriately.    See
       ldap_error(3) for a description of possible error codes.
