Re: RE: OpenLDAP & Howes/Smith Programming LDAP book...

Please note that examples in this book are designed to be used with
the Netscape/Mozilla API, not the U-Mich/OpenLDAP RFC-1823ish APIs.   There
are numerous syntax and semantics differences between these APIs
which, IIRC, the book does outline.   They are also discussed in past postings
of this list (which are available in the archives).  One of those differences is the
availability of the ldap_memfree() routine, this (in general) may be resolved
by adding:

#define ldap_memfree(x) free((x))

to your code.
