NAME         top

       ldap_add_ext, ldap_add_ext_s - Perform an LDAP add operation

LIBRARY         top

       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <ldap.h>

       int ldap_add_ext(
              LDAP *ld,
              const char *dn,
              LDAPMod **attrs,
              LDAPControl **sctrls,
              LDAPControl **cctrls,
              int *msgidp );

       int ldap_add_ext_s(
              LDAP *ld,
              const char *dn,
              LDAPMod **attrs,
              LDAPControl *sctrls,
              LDAPControl *cctrls );

DESCRIPTION         top

       The ldap_add_ext_s() routine is used to perform an LDAP add
       operation.  It takes dn, the DN of the entry to add, and attrs, a
       null-terminated array of the entry's attributes.  The LDAPMod
       structure is used to represent attributes, with the mod_type and
       mod_values fields being used as described under
       ldap_modify_ext(3), and the ldap_op field being used only if you
       need to specify the LDAP_MOD_BVALUES option. Otherwise, it should
       be set to zero.

       Note that all entries except that specified by the last component
       in the given DN must already exist.  ldap_add_ext_s() returns an
       code indicating success or, in the case of failure, indicating
       the nature of failure of the operation.  See ldap_error(3) for
       more details.

       The ldap_add_ext() routine works just like ldap_add_ext_s(), but
       it is asynchronous.  It returns the message id of the request it
       initiated.  The result of this operation can be obtained by
       calling ldap_result(3).


       The ldap_add() and ldap_add_s() routines are deprecated in favor
       of the ldap_add_ext() and ldap_add_ext_s() routines,

       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.
