ldap.h lists the standard meanings of LDAP result codes. If you want to get
the additional error text that accompanies an LDAP result message, you should
call ldap_parse_result() on the result message. If you used a synchronous
libldap call, then you didn't get the result message returned to you. In this
case, you can use ldap_get_option() with the LDAP_OPT_ERROR_STRING selector.
This approach is not reliable if your app is multithreaded and you have
multiple operations going on on the same LDAP* handle though; in that case
you should avoid using the synchronous calls, and always use
