              LDAPMod *mods[],
              LDAPControl **sctrls,
              LDAPControl **cctrls );

       void ldap_mods_free(
              LDAPMod **mods,
              int freemods );

DESCRIPTION
       The routine ldap_modify_ext_s() is used to perform an LDAP modify oper-
       ation.  dn is the DN of the entry to modify, and mods is a  null-termi-
       nated array of modifications to make to the entry.  Each element of the
       mods array is a pointer to  an  LDAPMod  structure,  which  is  defined
       below.

            typedef struct ldapmod {
                int mod_op;
                char *mod_type;
                union {
                    char **modv_strvals;
                    struct berval **modv_bvals;
                } mod_vals;
                struct ldapmod *mod_next;
            } LDAPMod;
            #define mod_values mod_vals.modv_strvals
            #define mod_bvalues mod_vals.modv_bvals

       The mod_op field is used to specify the type of modification to perform
       and   should   be   one   of    LDAP_MOD_ADD,    LDAP_MOD_DELETE,    or
       LDAP_MOD_REPLACE.   The  mod_type  and  mod_values  fields  specify the
       attribute type to modify and a null-terminated array of values to  add,
       delete,  or  replace  respectively.  The mod_next field is used only by
       the LDAP server and may be ignored by the client.

       If you need to specify a non-string value (e.g.,  to  add  a  photo  or
       audio  attribute value), you should set mod_op to the logical OR of the
       ifications are performed in the order in which they are listed.

       ldap_mods_free() can be used to free each element of a  NULL-terminated
       array  of  mod  structures.   If freemods is non-zero, the mods pointer
       itself is freed as well.

       ldap_modify_ext_s() returns a code indicating success or, in  the  case
       of  failure,  indicating  the nature of the failure.  See ldap_error(3)
       for details

       The  ldap_modify_ext()  operation  works  the  same  way  as  ldap_mod-
       ify_ext_s(),  except  that  it is asynchronous. The integer that msgidp
       points to is set to the message id of the modify request.   The  result
       of the operation can be obtained by calling ldap_result(3).

       Both ldap_modify_ext() and ldap_modify_ext_s() allows server and client
       controls to be passed in via the sctrls and cctrls parameters,  respec-
       tively.

DEPRECATED INTERFACES
       The  ldap_modify() and ldap_modify_s() routines are deprecated in favor
       of the  ldap_modify_ext()  and  ldap_modify_ext_s()  routines,  respec-
       tively.

       Deprecated  interfaces  generally  remain  in  the  library.  The macro
       LDAP_DEPRECATED can be defined to a non-zero value (e.g., -DLDAP_DEPRE-
       CATED=1)  when compiling program designed to use deprecated interfaces.
       It is recommended that developers writing new programs, or updating old
       programs,  avoid  use  of  deprecated  interfaces.   Over  time,  it is
       expected that documentation (and, eventually, support)  for  deprecated
       interfaces to be eliminated.
