NAME
ldap_compare, ldap_compare_s, ldap_compare_ext, ldap_compare_ext_s - LDAP compare operation SYNOPSIS
cc[ flag... ] file... -lldap[ library... ] #include <lber.h> #include <ldap.h> int ldap_compare(LDAP *ld, char *dn, char *attr, char *value); int ldap_compare_s(LDAP *ld, char *dn, char *attr, char *value); int ldap_compare_ext(LDAP *ld, char *dn, char *attr, struct berval *bvalue, LDAPControl **serverctrls, LDAPControl **clientctrls, int *msgidp); int ldap_compare_ext_s(LDAP *ld, char *dn, char *attr, struct berval *bvalue, LDAPControl **serverctrls, LDAPControl **clientctrls); DESCRIPTION
The ldap_compare_s() function is used to perform an LDAP compare operation synchronously. It takes dn, the DN of the entry upon which to perform the compare, and attr and value, the attribute type and value to compare to those found in the entry. It returns an LDAP error code, which will be LDAP_COMPARE_TRUE if the entry contains the attribute value and LDAP_COMPARE_FALSE if it does not. Otherwise, some error code is returned. The ldap_compare() function is used to perform an LDAP compare operation asynchronously. It takes the same parameters as ldap_compare_s(), but returns the message id of the request it initiated. The result of the compare can be obtained by a subsequent call to ldap_result(3LDAP). The ldap_compare_ext() function initiates an asynchronous compare operation and returns LDAP_SUCCESS if the request was successfully sent to the server, or else it returns a LDAP error code if not (see ldap_error(3LDAP). If successful, ldap_compare_ext() places the message id of the request in *msgidp. A subsequent call to ldap_result(), can be used to obtain the result of the add request. The ldap_compare_ext_s() function initiates a synchronous compare operation and as such returns the result of the operation itself. ERRORS
ldap_compare_s() returns an LDAP error code which can be interpreted by calling one of ldap_perror(3LDAP) and friends. ldap_compare() returns -1 if something went wrong initiating the request. It returns the non-negative message id of the request if it was successful. ATTRIBUTES

NAME
ldap_compare, ldap_compare_s, ldap_compare_ext, ldap_compare_ext_s - Perform an LDAP compare 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 synchronously. 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 indicates the nature of the problem. See ldap(3) for details. The ldap_compare_ext() routine is used to perform an LDAP compare operation asynchronously. It takes the same parameters as ldap_com- pare_ext_s(), but provides the message 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_compare_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_DEPRE- CATED=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. SEE ALSO
