       nbp_name - NBP name parsing


       int nbp_name(char *name, char **obj, char **type, char **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 call.
