       #include <ldap.h>

       int ldap_add_ext(
              LDAP *ld,
              const char *dn,
              LDAPMod **attrs,
              LDAPControl **sctrls,
              LDAPControl **cctrls,
              int *msgidp );

       int ldap_add_ext_s(
              LDAP *ld,
              const char *dn,
              LDAPMod **attrs,
              LDAPControl *sctrls,
              LDAPControl *cctrls );

       The  ldap_add_ext_s()  routine  is used to perform an LDAP add operation.  It takes dn, the DN of the
       entry to add, and attrs, a null-terminated array of the entry's attributes.  The LDAPMod structure is
       used  to  represent attributes, with the mod_type and mod_values fields being used as described under
       ldap_modify_ext(3), and the ldap_op field being used only if you need to specify the LDAP_MOD_BVALUES
       option. Otherwise, it should be set to zero.

       Note that all entries except that specified by the last component in the given DN must already exist.
       ldap_add_ext_s() returns an code indicating success or, in the case of failure, indicating the nature
       of failure of the operation.  See ldap_error(3) for more details.

       The  ldap_add_ext() routine works just like ldap_add_ext_s(), but it is asynchronous.  It returns the
       message id of the request it initiated.  The result of this operation  can  be  obtained  by  calling

       The  ldap_add()  and  ldap_add_s()  routines  are  deprecated  in  favor  of  the  ldap_add_ext() and
       ldap_add_ext_s() routines, respectively.

       Deprecated interfaces generally remain in the library.  The macro LDAP_DEPRECATED can be defined to a
       non-zero  value  (e.g., -DLDAP_DEPRECATED=1) when compiling program designed to use deprecated inter-faces. interfaces.
       faces.  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.
