Similar to krb5_parse_name() , this function converts a single-string representation of a principal name to a krb5_principal structure.

The following flags are valid:

If KRB5_PRINCIPAL_PARSE_NO_REALM or KRB5_PRINCIPAL_PARSE_IGNORE_REALM is specified in flags , the realm of the new principal will be empty. Otherwise, the default realm for context will be used if name does not specify a realm.

Use krb5_free_principal() to free principal_out when it is no longer needed.
