NAME

       BIO_hostserv_priorities, BIO_parse_hostserv - utility routines to parse a standard host
       and service string

SYNOPSIS

        #include <openssl/bio.h>

        enum BIO_hostserv_priorities {
            BIO_PARSE_PRIO_HOST, BIO_PARSE_PRIO_SERV
        };
        int BIO_parse_hostserv(const char *hostserv, char **host, char **service,
                               enum BIO_hostserv_priorities hostserv_prio);

DESCRIPTION

       BIO_parse_hostserv() will parse the information given in hostserv, create strings with the
       host name and service name and give those back via host and service.  Those will need to
       be freed after they are used.  hostserv_prio helps determine if hostserv shall be
       interpreted primarily as a host name or a service name in ambiguous cases.

       The syntax the BIO_parse_hostserv() recognises is:

        host + ':' + service
        host + ':' + '*'
        host + ':'
               ':' + service
        '*'  + ':' + service
        host
        service

       The host part can be a name or an IP address.  If it's a IPv6 address, it MUST be enclosed
       in brackets, such as '[::1]'.

       The service part can  be a service name or its port number.

       The returned values will depend on the given hostserv string and hostserv_prio, as
       follows:

        host + ':' + service  => *host = "host", *service = "service"
        host + ':' + '*'      => *host = "host", *service = NULL
        host + ':'            => *host = "host", *service = NULL
               ':' + service  => *host = NULL, *service = "service"
         '*' + ':' + service  => *host = NULL, *service = "service"

        in case no ':' is present in the string, the result depends on
        hostserv_prio, as follows:

        when hostserv_prio == BIO_PARSE_PRIO_HOST
        host                 => *host = "host", *service untouched

        when hostserv_prio == BIO_PARSE_PRIO_SERV
        service              => *host untouched, *service = "service"
