NAMEldap_add, ldap_add_s - Perform an LDAP add operation
#include <ldap.h> int ldap_add(ld, dn, attrs) LDAP *ld; char *dn; LDAPMod *attrs; int ldap_add_s(ld, dn, attrs) LDAP *ld; char *dn; LDAPMod *attrs;
DESCRIPTIONThe ldap_add_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(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_s() returns an LDAP error code indicating success or failure of the operation. See ldap_error(3) for more details.
The ldap_add() routine works just like ldap_add_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).
ERRORSldap_add() returns -1 in case of error initiating the request, and will set the ld_errno field in the ld parameter to indicate the error. ldap_add_s() will return an LDAP error code directly (LDAP_SUCCESS if everything went ok, some error otherwise).
