function hosting_client_sanitize

7.x-3.x hosting_client.module hosting_client_sanitize($title)

Return a machine-usable name for a client.

This aims to be usable for unix group/user names and shells.

It adds a prefix configured in the frontend settings (defaulting to 'cl-'), and strips the total length of the string (including the prefix) to HOSTING_CLIENT_MAX_GROUP_LENGTH.

This can also be used to validate user-provided client unames, as it strips and readds the prefix and performs the same validation and corrections on the field.

This is inspired from the context sanitization stuff.
