	   int	       lud_port;       /* port on host */
	   char *      lud_dn;	       /* base for search */
	   char **     lud_attrs;      /* list of attributes */
	   int	       lud_scope;      /* a LDAP_SCOPE_... value */

	   int	       lud_crit_exts;  /* true if any extension is critical */

       ldap_free_urldesc( LDAPURLDesc *ludp )

       These routines support the use of LDAP URLs (Uniform Resource Locators)
       as detailed in RFC 2255.	 LDAP URLs look like this:


	 hostport is a host name with an optional ":portnumber"
	 dn is the search base
	 attrs is a comma separated list of attributes to request
	 scope is one of these three strings:
	   base one sub (default=base)
	 filter is filter
	 exts are recognized set of LDAP and/or API extensions.


       URLs  that  are wrapped in angle-brackets and/or preceded by "URL:" are
       also tolerated.	Alternative schemes such as ldaps:// and ldapi://  may
       be parsed using the below routines as well.

       ldap_is_ldap_url()  returns  a non-zero value if url looks like an LDAP
       URL (as opposed to some other kind of URL).  It can be used as a	 quick
       check for an LDAP URL; the ldap_url_parse() routine should be used if a
       more thorough check is needed.

       ldap_url_parse() breaks down an LDAP URL passed in url into its	compo‐
       nent  pieces.  If successful, zero is returned, an LDAP URL description
       is allocated, filled in, and ludpp is set to point to it.  If an	 error
       occurs, a non-zero URL error code is returned.

       ldap_free_urldesc()  should  be	called to free an LDAP URL description
       that was obtained from a call to ldap_url_parse().

       (http://www.openldap.org/).   OpenLDAP  is  derived  from University of
       Michigan LDAP 3.3 Release.
