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



NAME
       wcsdup - duplicate a wide-character string

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

       wchar_t *wcsdup(const wchar_t *s);

DESCRIPTION
       The wcsdup() function is the wide-character equivalent of the strdup(3)
       function.  It allocates and returns a new wide-character  string  whose
       initial contents is a duplicate of the wide-character string pointed to
       by s.

       Memory for the new wide-character string is  obtained  with  malloc(3),
       and should be freed with free(3).

RETURN VALUE
       The  wcsdup()  function  returns  a  pointer  to the new wide-character
       string, or NULL if sufficient memory was not available.

ERRORS
       ENOMEM Insufficient memory available to allocate duplicate string.

CONFORMING TO
       This function is a GNU extension.
