const char *OSSL_HTTP_adapt_proxy(const char *proxy, const char *no_proxy,

int OSSL_parse_url(const char *url, char **pscheme, char **puser, char **phost,

The following functions have been deprecated since OpenSSL 3.0, and can be
hidden entirely by defining B<OPENSSL_API_COMPAT> with a suitable version value,
see L<openssl_user_macros(7)>:
int OCSP_parse_url(const char *url, char **phost, char **pport, char **ppath,
int *pssl);
OSSL_HTTP_adapt_proxy() takes an optional proxy hostname I<proxy>
and returns it transformed according to the optional I<no_proxy> parameter,
I<server>, I<use_ssl>, and the applicable environment variable, as follows.
If I<proxy> is NULL, take any default value from the C<http_proxy>
environment variable, or from C<https_proxy> if I<use_ssl> is nonzero.
If this still does not yield a proxy hostname,
take any further default value from the C<HTTP_PROXY>
environment variable, or from C<HTTPS_PROXY> if I<use_ssl> is nonzero.
If I<no_proxy> is NULL, take any default exclusion value from the C<no_proxy>
environment variable, or else from C<NO_PROXY>.
Return the determined proxy hostname unless the exclusion contains I<server>.
Otherwise return NULL.
OSSL_parse_url() parses its input string I<url> as a URL of the form
C<[scheme://][userinfo@]host[:port][/path][?query][#fragment]> and splits it up
into scheme, userinfo, host, port, path, query, and fragment components.
The host (or server) component may be a DNS name or an IP address
where IPv6 addresses should be enclosed in square brackets C<[> and C<]>.
The port component is optional and defaults to C<0>.
If given, it must be in decimal form. If the I<pport_num> argument is not NULL
the integer value of the port number is assigned to I<*pport_num> on success.
The path component is also optional and defaults to C</>.
Each non-NULL result pointer argument I<pscheme>, I<puser>, I<phost>, I<pport>,
I<ppath>, I<pquery>, and I<pfrag>, is assigned the respective url component.
On success, they are guaranteed to contain non-NULL string pointers, else NULL.
It is the responsibility of the caller to free them using L<OPENSSL_free(3)>.
If I<pquery> is NULL, any given query component is handled as part of the path.
A string returned via I<*ppath> is guaranteed to begin with a C</> character.
For absent scheme, userinfo, port, query, and fragment components
an empty string is provided.
OSSL_HTTP_parse_url() is a special form of OSSL_parse_url()
where the scheme, if given, must be C<http> or C<https>.
If I<pssl> is not NULL, I<*pssl> is assigned 1 in case parsing was successful
and the scheme is C<https>, else 0.
The port component is optional and defaults to C<443> if the scheme is C<https>,
else C<80>.
Note that relative paths must be given with a leading C</>,
otherwise the first path element is interpreted as the hostname.
Calling the deprecated function OCSP_parse_url(url, host, port, path, ssl)
is equivalent to
OSSL_HTTP_parse_url(url, ssl, NULL, host, port, NULL, path, NULL, NULL).
OSSL_HTTP_adapt_proxy() returns NULL if no proxy is to be used,
otherwise a constant proxy hostname string,
which is either the proxy name handed in or an environment variable value.
OSSL_parse_url(), OSSL_HTTP_parse_url(), and OCSP_parse_url()
return 1 on success, 0 on error.
