ldap_parse_sort_control — Decode the information returned from a search operation that used a server-side sort control
|unsigned long *returnCode,|
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.
