ldap_delete_s(3) -- Linux man page



ldap_delete, ldap_delete_s - Perform an LDAP delete operation  


OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)  


#include <ldap.h>

int ldap_delete_s(ld, dn)
LDAP *ld;
char *dn;

int ldap_delete(ld, dn)
LDAP *ld;
char *dn;


The ldap_delete_s() routine is used to perform an LDAP delete operation synchronously. It takes dn, the DN of the entry to be deleted. It returns an LDAP error code, indicating the success or failure of the operation.

The ldap_delete() routine is used to perform an LDAP delete operation asynchronously. It takes the same parameters as ldap_delete_s(), but returns the message id of the request it initiated. The result of the delete can be obtained by a subsequent call to ldap_result(3).  


ldap_delete_s() returns an LDAP error code which can be interpreted by calling one of ldap_perror(3) and friends. ldap_delete() returns -1 if something went wrong initiating the request. It returns the non-negative message id of the request if things went ok.
