       ldap_modrdn,  ldap_modrdn_s,  ldap_modrdn2, ldap_modrdn2_s - Perform an
       LDAP modify RDN operation


       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)


       #include <ldap.h>

       int ldap_modrdn(ld, dn, newrdn)
       LDAP *ld;
       char *dn, *newrdn;

       int ldap_modrdn_s(ld, dn, newrdn)
       LDAP *ld;
       char *dn, *newrdn;

       int ldap_modrdn2(ld, dn, newrdn, deleteoldrdn)
       LDAP *ld;
       char *dn, *newrdn;
       int deleteoldrdn;

       int ldap_modrdn2_s(ld, dn, newrdn, deleteoldrdn)
       LDAP *ld;
       char *dn, *newrdn;
       int deleteoldrdn;


       The ldap_modrdn() and ldap_modrdn_s() routines perform an  LDAP  modify
       RDN  operation.  They both take dn, the DN of the entry whose RDN is to
       be changed, and newrdn, the new RDN to give the entry.  The old RDN  of
       the entry is never kept as an attribute of the entry.  ldap_modrdn() is
       asynchronous, returning the message id of the operation  it  initiates.
       ldap_modrdn_s()   is   synchronous,   returning  the  LDAP  error  code
       indicating the success or failure  of  the  operation.   Use  of  these
       routines is deprecated.  Use the versions described below instead.

       The  ldap_modrdn2()  and ldap_modrdn2_s() routines also perform an LDAP
       modify  RDN  operation,  taking  the  same  parameters  as  above.   In
       addition,  they both take the deleteoldrdn parameter which is used as a
       boolean value to indicate whether the old RDN values should be  deleted
       from the entry or not.


       The  synchronous  (_s)  versions of these routines return an LDAP error
       code, either LDAP_SUCCESS or  an  error  if  there  was  trouble.   The
       asynchronous  versions  return  -1  in  case  of  trouble,  setting the
       ld_errno field of ld.  See ldap_error(3) for more details.
