       ldap_parse_sort_control - Decode the information returned from a search
       operation that used a server-side sort control


       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)


       #include <ldap.h>

       int ldap_parse_sort_control(ld, ctrls, returnCode, attribute)
       LDAP *ld;
       LDAPControl **ctrls;
       unsigned long *returnCode;
       char **attribute;


       This function is used  to  parse  the  results  returned  in  a  search
       operation that uses a server-side sort control.

       It  takes  a  null  terminated  array of LDAPControl structures usually
       obtained by a call to  the  ldap_parse_result  function.  A  returncode
       which   points  to  the  sort  control  result  code,and  an  array  of
       LDAPControl structures that list the client controls to  use  with  the
       search.   The function also takes an out parameter attribute and if the
       sort operation fails, the server may return a string that indicates the
       first  attribute  in  the sortKey list that caused the failure. If this
       parameter is NULL, no string is returned. If a string is returned,  the
       memory should be freed by calling the ldap_memfree function.
