nbp_name - NBP name parsing
nbp_name( name, obj, type, zone )
char *name, **obj, **type, **zone;
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 `@'.
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.
obj, type, and zone return pointers into static area which may be over-written on each
