RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for nbp_name (redhat section 3)

NBP_NAME(3)			     Library Functions Manual			      NBP_NAME(3)

NAME
       nbp_name - NBP name parsing

SYNOPSIS
       nbp_name( name, obj, type, zone )
       char *name, **obj, **type, **zone;

DESCRIPTION
       nbp_name()  parses  user supplied names into their component object, type, and zone.  obj,
       type, and zone should be passed by reference, and should point  to  the	caller's  default
       values.	 nbp_name()  will  change  the pointers to the parsed-out values.  name is of the
       form object:type@zone, where each of object, :type, and @zone replace obj, type, and zone,
       respectively.  type must be proceeded by `:', and zone must be preceded by `@'.

EXAMPLE
       The  argument  of afpd(8)'s -n option is parsed with nbp_name().  The default value of obj
       is the first component of the machine's hostname (as returned by  gethostbyname(3)).   The
       default	value of type is ``AFPServer'', and of zone is ``*'', the default zone.  To cause
       afpd to register itself in some zone other than the default, one would invoke it as

	      afpd -n @some-other-zone

       obj and type would retain their default values.

BUGS
       obj, type, and zone return pointers into static area which may  be  over-written  on  each
       call.
