NAME

ldap_searchprefs, ldap_init_searchprefs, ldap_init_searchprefs_buf, ldap_free_searchprefs, ldap_first_searchobj, ldap_next_searchobj - LDAP search preference configuration routeines  

SYNOPSIS

cc[ flag... ] file... -lldap[ library... ]

# include <lber.h>
# include <ldap.h>

int ldap_init_searchprefs(char **file, struct ldap_searchobj ***solistp);

int ldap_init_searchprefs_buf(char **buf, unsigned longlen, struct ldap_searchobj **solistp);

struct ldap_searchobj **ldap_free_searchprefs(struct ldap_searchobj **solist);

struct ldap_searchobj **ldap_first_searchobj(struct ldap_seachobj **solist);

struct ldap_searchobj **ldap_next_searchobj(struct ldap_seachobj **solist, struct ldap_seachobj **so);  

DESCRIPTION

These functions provide a standard way to access LDAP search preference configuration data. LDAP search preference configurations are typically used by LDAP client programs to specify which attributes a user may search by, labels for the attributes, and LDAP filters and scopes associated with those searches. Client software presents these choices to a user, who can then specify the type of search to be performed.

ldap_init_searchprefs() reads a sequence of search preference configurations from a valid LDAP searchpref configuration file. See ldapsearchprefs.conf(4). Upon success, 0 is returned and solistp is set to point to a list of search preference data structures.

ldap_init_searchprefs_buf() reads a sequence of search preference configurations from buf, whose size is buflen. buf should point to the data in the format defined for an LDAP search preference configuration file. See ldapsearchprefs.conf(4). Upon success, 0 is returned and solistp is set to point to a list of search preference data structures.

ldap_free_searchprefs() disposes of the data structures allocated by ldap_init_searchprefs().

ldap_first_searchpref() returns the first search preference data structure in the list solist. The solist is typically obtained by calling ldap_init_searchprefs().

ldap_next_searchpref() returns the search preference after so in the template list solist. A NULL pointer is returned if so is the last entry in the list.  

ERRORS

ldap_init_search_prefs() and ldap_init_search_prefs_bufs() return:

LDAP_SEARCHPREF_ERR_VERSION **buf points to data that is newer than can be handled.

LDAP_SEARCHPREF_ERR_MEM Memory allocation problem.
