NAME         top

       ldap_parse_reference - Extract referrals and controls from a
       reference message

LIBRARY         top

       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <ldap.h>

       int ldap_parse_reference( LDAP *ld, LDAPMessage *reference,
            char ***referralsp, LDAPControl ***serverctrlsp,
            int freeit )

DESCRIPTION         top

       The ldap_parse_reference() routine is used to extract referrals
       and controls from a reference message.  The reference parameter
       is a reference message as returned by a call to
       ldap_first_reference(3), ldap_next_reference(3),
       ldap_first_message(3), ldap_next_message(3), or ldap_result(3).

       The referralsp parameter will be filled in with an allocated
       array of character strings. The strings are copies of the
       referrals contained in the parsed message. The array should be
       freed by calling ldap_value_free(3).  If referralsp is NULL, no
       referrals are returned.  If no referrals were returned,
       *referralsp is set to NULL.

       The serverctrlsp parameter will be filled in with an allocated
       array of controls copied from the parsed message. The array
       should be freed by calling ldap_controls_free(3).  If
       serverctrlsp is NULL, no controls are returned.  If no controls
       were returned, *serverctrlsp is set to NULL.

       The freeit parameter determines whether the parsed message is
       freed or not after the extraction. Any non-zero value will make
       it free the message. The ldap_msgfree(3) routine can also be used
       to free the message later.

ERRORS         top

       Upon success LDAP_SUCCESS is returned. Otherwise the values of
       the referralsp and serverctrlsp parameters are undefined.
