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 back-slash (" .") A realm should not contain slashes or colons.
