KRB5_PARSE_NAME(3)         Library Functions Manual         KRB5_PARSE_NAME(3)

NAME
     krb5_parse_name -- string to principal conversion

LIBRARY
     Kerberos 5 Library (libkrb5, -lkrb5)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;krb5/krb5.h>&gt;

     krb5_error_code
     krb5_parse_name(krb5_context context, const char *name, krb5_principal
     *principal);

DESCRIPTION
     krb5_parse_name() converts a string representation of a principal name to
     krb5_principal.  The principal will point to allocated data that should
     be freed with krb5_free_principal().

     The string should consist of one or more name components separated with
     slashes (``/''), optionally followed with an ``@'' and a realm name. A
     slash or @ may be contained in a name component by quoting it with a
     backslash (``\'').  A realm should not contain slashes or colons.
