Well, OpenLDAP itself.  The client tools and contribWare
codes serve as examples.  There are a number of books available
on LDAP programming, but be careful, many of the examples use
vendor specific APIs.

First, RFC 1883 is not a standard.  It's an Information RFC.
Yes, the U-Mich API (which OpenLDAP 1.x implements) is slightly

Note that devel codes track IETF LDAPext WG C API drafts.
We hope that these specifications get published soon as an
RFC so that we can have some convergence to a common API.
