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).
The ldap_delete_ext() routine allows server and client controls to be specified to extend the delete request. This routine is asynchronous like ldap_delete(), but its return value is an LDAP error code. It stores the message id of the request in the integer pointed to by msgidp.
The ldap_delete_ext_s() routine is the synchronous version of ldap_delete_ext(). It also returns an LDAP error code indicating success or failure of the operation.
ldap_delete_ext() and ldap_delete_ext_s() return some Non-zero value if something went wrong initiating the request, else return 0.
