credential: add function for parsing url components
All of the components of a credential struct can be found in a URL. For example, the URL: contains: protocol=http path=repo.git username=foo password=bar We want to be able to turn URLs into broken-down credential structs so that we know two things: 1. Which parts of the username/password we still need 2. What the context of the request is (for prompting or as a key for storing credentials). This code is based on http_auth_init in http.c, but needed a few modifications in order to get all of the components that the credential object is interested in. Once the http code is switched over to the credential API, then http_auth_init can just go away. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
