.Fn trimdomain "char *fullhost" "int hostsize"
.Sh DESCRIPTION
The function
.Fn trimdomain
removes the current domain name from the passed
.Ar fullhost
name by writing a
.Dv NUL
character over the first period of the passed name.
The current domain

The name is determined
the first time this function is called and is cached for future use.

function will only trim the domain name if the passed
.Ar fullname
ends with the current domain name and if the length of the resulting host
name does not exceed
.Ar hostsize .

If the passed
.Ar fullname
is actually a
.Dv DISPLAY
specification of the form
.Sm off
.Ar host . domain : nn Oo .
.Ar nn
.Oc
.Sm on
and the domain name is the same as the local domain name,
.Fn trimdomain
will remove the embedded domain name, copying the screen and display
numbers to the end of the base host name and resulting in
.Sm off
.Ar host : nn Op . Ar nn .
