Re: [bug-inetutils] [PATCH] Verify name is allocated in hostname.c/parse

   This change adds a test at the end of parse_args that exits if name was
   not allocated, i.e. if name is still NULL.

Thank you for you bug report!

parse_file returning NULL is valid in case of a munged input.

The right place is to make sure that the callee for parse_name
(i.e. set_name) handles the NULL case properly.  Would you like to
submit a patch that does that?
