LDAP_DELETE(3)                                                  LDAP_DELETE(3)



NAME
       ldap_delete, ldap_delete_s - Perform an LDAP delete operation

LIBRARY
       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

SYNOPSIS
       #include <ldap.h>

       int ldap_delete_s(ld(1,8), dn)
       LDAP *ld(1,8);
       char *dn;

       int ldap_delete(ld(1,8), dn)
       LDAP *ld(1,8);
       char *dn;

DESCRIPTION
       The ldap_delete_s() routine is used to perform an LDAP delete operation
       synchronously.  It takes dn, the DN of the entry  to  be  deleted.   It
       returns  an  LDAP  error(8,n) code, indicating the success or failure of the
       operation.

       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).

ERRORS
       ldap_delete_s()  returns an LDAP error(8,n) code which can be interpreted by
       calling one of ldap_perror(3) and friends.  ldap_delete() returns -1 if(3,n)
       something  went wrong initiating the request.  It returns the non-nega-
       tive message id of the request if(3,n) things went ok.
