ldap_explode_dn function

The ldap_explode_dn function breaks up an entry name into its component parts.

Syntax


PCHAR* ldap_explode_dn(
  _In_  PCHAR dn,
  _In_  ULONG notypes
);

Parameters

dn [in]

A pointer to a null-terminated string that contains the distinguished name to explode. The string that this pointer refers to cannot be a constant string.

notypes [in]

Indicates whether the type information components should be removed.

Return value

If the function succeeds, it returns a null-terminated character array containing the relative distinguished name components of the distinguished name supplied.

Remarks

Call ldap_explode_dn to separate a distinguished name into its component parts. Set the notypes parameter to a nonzero value to remove type information, such as "cn=" from the components. The components of the relative distinguished name are returned in a character array. Free this array when it is no longer needed by calling ldap_value_free.

Calling ldap_explode_dn with a pointer to a constant string will cause the function to fail.
