These routines support the use of LDAP URLs (Uniform Resource
Locators) as detailed in RFC 4516. LDAP URLs look like this:
hostport is a host name with an optional ":portnumber"
dn is the search base
attrs is a comma separated list of attributes to request
scope is one of these three strings:
base one sub (default=base)
filter is filter
exts are recognized set of LDAP and/or API extensions.
URLs that are wrapped in angle-brackets and/or preceded by "URL:" are
also tolerated. Alternative LDAP schemes such as ldaps:// and
ldapi:// may be parsed using the below routines as well.
ldap_is_ldap_url() returns a non-zero value if url looks like an LDAP
URL (as opposed to some other kind of URL). It can be used as a
quick check for an LDAP URL; the ldap_url_parse() routine should be
used if a more thorough check is needed.
ldap_url_parse() breaks down an LDAP URL passed in url into its
component pieces. If successful, zero is returned, an LDAP URL
description is allocated, filled in, and ludpp is set to point to it.
If an error occurs, a non-zero URL error code is returned.
ldap_free_urldesc() should be called to free an LDAP URL description
that was obtained from a call to ldap_url_parse().
