       ldap_get_values,	   ldap_get_values_len,	  ldap_count_values   -	  LDAP
       attribute value handling routines

       OpenLDAP LDAP (libldap, -lldap)

       #include <ldap.h>

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

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

       int ldap_count_values(vals)
       char **vals;

       int ldap_count_values_len(vals)
       struct berval **vals;

       void ldap_value_free(vals)
       char **vals;

       void ldap_value_free_len(vals)
       struct berval **vals;

       These routines are used to retrieve  and	 manipulate  attribute	values
       from   an   LDAP	  entry	  as   returned	  by   ldap_first_entry(3)  or
       ldap_next_entry(3).   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(3) or ldap_next_attribute(3), 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
       calling 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() routine
       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
       is  returned and the ld_errno field in the ld parameter is set to indi‐
       cate the error.	See ldap_error(3) for a description of possible	 error

       These  routines	dynamically allocate memory which the caller must free
       using the supplied routines.
