ldap_normalise_objectclass

Normalise the supplied objectclass filter. This normalisation is a rudimentary attempt to format the objectclass filter correctly.

Quote control characters in texts used in LDAP filters - see RFC 4515/2254

Returns the special characters in order of replacement

ldap_addslashes

Quote control characters in AttributeValue parts of a RelativeDistinguishedName used in LDAP distinguished names - See RFC 4514/2253

Unquote control characters in AttributeValue parts of a RelativeDistinguishedName used in LDAP distinguished names - See RFC 4514/2253

ldap_paged_results_supported

Check if we can use paged results (see RFC 2696). We need to use LDAP version 3 (or later), otherwise the server cannot use them. If we also pass in a valid LDAP connection handle, we also check whether the server actually supports them.
