Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 Developer's Guide

Memory Concerns

Directory Server makes a copy of the oid string.

The contents of the ber parameter are consumed by this function. Because of this, the caller should not free the BerElement once a successful call has been made to slapi_build_control().

The LDAPControl pointer that is returned in ctrlp should be freed by calling ldap_control_free(3LDAP), which is an LDAP API function.
