Use ldap_parse_page_control in conjunction with ldap_create_page_control and ldap_parse_result to implement the simple paging of results by means of controls. After calling ldap_parse_page_control to retrieve the server controls and extract the cookie from the search result, call ldap_parse_result to parse the results. Then use the cookie to call ldap_create_page_control to retrieve the next page of results.
