WCPCPY(3)                  Linux Programmer's Manual                 WCPCPY(3)



NAME
       wcpcpy - copy a wide-character string, returning a pointer to its end

SYNOPSIS
       #define _GNU_SOURCE
       #include <&lt;wchar.h>&gt;

       wchar_t *wcpcpy(wchar_t *dest, const wchar_t *src);

DESCRIPTION
       The wcpcpy() function is the wide-character equivalent of the stpcpy(3)
       function.  It copies the  wide-character  string  pointed  to  by  src,
       including  the  terminating L'\0' character, to the array pointed to by
       dest.

       The strings may not overlap.

       The  programmer  must  ensure  that  there  is  room   for   at   least
       wcslen(src)+1 wide characters at dest.

RETURN VALUE
       wcpcpy()  returns  a  pointer  to  the end of the wide-character string
       dest, that is, a pointer to the terminating L'\0' character.

CONFORMING TO
       This function is a GNU extension.
