@node Client-side name expansion
@subsection Client-side name expansion
When a client needs to prompt the user for a conference (or person),
it could offer the user several ways of specifying the conference:
@itemize @bullet
@item By conference number
@item By name, using the @reqdlink{lookup-z-name} call@linkhere{}.
@item By name, using the @reqdlink{re-z-lookup} call@linkhere{}.
@item By name, transforming the string to a case insensitive regular
expression, and then using the @req{re-z-lookup} call.
@end itemize
It is beyond the scope of this document to specify how the client
interacts with the user.
The client should offer the user all the methods of specifying a
conference listed above. At the very least, the two first methods
should be supported.
