You could call something which uses LDAP_VALID() but does nothing
else. For example: (void) ldap_count_messages(ld, NULL). But
that does assert(LDAP_VALID(ld)) which crashes if ld is invalid.
If you wish to use the macro directly: Configure the
OpenLDAP source tree (to generate internal headers), then
#include <openldap source>/libraries/libldap/ldap-int.h.
Note that LDAP_VALID() is just a brief sanity check that the LDAP*
has been initialized properly and has not been destroyed:
#define LDAP_VALID(ld) ( (ld)->ld_valid == LDAP_VALID_SESSION )
