       ldap_add_ext, ldap_add_ext_s - Perform an LDAP add operation


       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)


       #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 );


       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, respectively.

       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.
