Useful function to delete dn entries recursively

bool myldap_delete ( resource ds, string dn, bool recursive)

Returns TRUE on success, FALSE on failure
recursive is by default FALSE (same behaviour as ldap_delete)

function myldap_delete($ds,$dn,$recursive=false){
    if($recursive == false){
        return(ldap_delete($ds,$dn));
    }else{
        //searching for sub entries
        $sr=ldap_list($ds,$dn,"ObjectClass=*",array(""));
        $info = ldap_get_entries($ds, $sr);
        for($i=0;$i<$info['count'];$i++){
            //deleting recursively sub entries
            $result=myldap_delete($ds,$info[$i]['dn'],$recursive);
            if(!$result){
                //return result code, if delete fails
                return($result);
            }
        }
        return(ldap_delete($ds,$dn));
    }
}
