- abandon an LDAP operation in progress
cc[ flag... ] file... -lldap[ library... ] #include <lber.h> #include <ldap.h> int ldap_abandon(LDAP *ld, int msgid);
The ldap_abandon() function is used to abandon or cancel an LDAP operation in progress. The msgid passed should be the message id of an outstanding LDAP operation, as returned by ldap_search(3LDAP), ldap_modify(3LDAP), etc.
ldap_abandon( ) checks to see if the result of the operation has already come in. If it has, it deletes it from the queue of pending messages. If not, it sends an LDAP abandon operation to the the LDAP server.
The caller can expect that the result of an abandoned operation will not be returned from a future call to ldap_result(3LDAP).
ldap_abandon() returns 0 if successful or -1otherwise and setting ld_errno appropriately. See ldap_error(3LDAP) for details.
