Ok the light bulb came on and I think I've figured out most of the
standard library (ldap.h) functions. I misspoke about some of the
depreciated functions. My library was not compiled correctly.
Now I am moving on to trying to read/write ldif files. ldif.c has
everything I need. However there are some odd includes:
Can these be converted to <stdlib.h> instead of <ac/stdlib.h>? I'd like
to pull the minimal amount of code from the distribution to include in
my code. Ultimately I'd love to see a standard ldif lib much like the
Can anyone assist? I am just starting into gcc and c and am a bit
rusty. To someone experienced I would think it could be extracted

where to get an LDIF library to parse/write ldif files.
Can anyone point me in the right direction on this? It's been a long

I believe this is the only piece I'm missing, the LDAP library calls
work flawlessly. I also did learn that many of the depreciated
functions are still documented as valid functions (ldap_get_values,
ldap_count_values, ldap_value_free). I couldn't find anything that
There is no complete library for LDIF parsing in OpenLDAP; probably
there needs to be one. You should just copy the code in
clients/tools/ldapmodify.c in the meantime. And you should read
clients/tools/ldapsearch.c, regarding the other functions you mentioned.
