       ldap_get_values,		ldap_get_values_len,	    ldap_count_values,
       ldap_count_values_len,  ldap_value_free,	 ldap_value_free_len  -	  LDAP
       attribute value handling functions

       char **ldap_get_values(LDAP *ld, LDAPMessage *entry, char *attr);

       struct berval **ldap_get_values_len(LDAP *ld, LDAPMessage *entry,
	    char *attr);

       ldap_count_values(char **vals);

       ldap_count_values_len(struct berval **vals);

       ldap_value_free(char **vals);

       ldap_value_free_len(struct berval **vals);

       These  functions	 are  used to retrieve and manipulate attribute values
       from  an	 LDAP  entry  as  returned   by	  ldap_first_entry(3LDAP)   or
       ldap_next_entry(3LDAP).	ldap_get_values()  takes  the  entry  and  the
       attribute attr whose values are desired and returns  a  null-terminated
       array  of  the  attribute's  values.   attr may be an attribute type as
       returned		 from	       ldap_first_attribute(3LDAP)	    or
       ldap_next_attribute(3LDAP),  or	if  the attribute type is known it can
       simply be given.

       The  number  of	values	in  the	 array	can  be	 counted  by   calling
       ldap_count_values(). The array of values returned can be freed by call‐
       ing ldap_value_free().

       If the attribute values are binary in nature, and thus not suitable  to
       be returned as an array of char *'s, the ldap_get_values_len() function
       can be used instead.  It takes the  same	 parameters  as	 ldap_get_val‐
       ues(), but returns a null-terminated array of pointers to berval struc‐
       tures, each containing the length of and a pointer to a value.

       The  number  of	values	in  the	 array	can  be	 counted  by   calling
       ldap_count_values_len().	 The  array of values returned can be freed by
       calling ldap_value_free_len().

       If an error occurs in ldap_get_values() or ldap_get_values_len(),  NULL
       returned	 and the ld_errno field in the ld parameter is set to indicate
       the error.  See ldap_error(3LDAP) for a description of  possible	 error

       See attributes(5) for a description of the following attributes:

       │Interface Stability │ Evolving	      │

       ldap(3LDAP),    ldap_first_entry(3LDAP),	  ldap_first_attribute(3LDAP),
       ldap_error(3LDAP), attributes(5)

       These functions allocates memory that the caller must free.
