NAME
     strcpy — copy strings

SYNOPSIS
     #include <string.h>

     char *
     strcpy(char *dst, const char *src);

     char *
     strncpy(char *dst, const char *src, size_t len);

DESCRIPTION
     The strcpy() and strncpy() functions copy the string src to dst (includ‐
     ing the terminating ‘\0’ character).

     The strncpy() copies not more than len characters into dst, appending
     ‘\0’ characters if src is less than len characters long, and not termi‐
     nating dst if src is more than len characters long.

RETURN VALUES
     The strcpy() and strncpy() functions return dst.

EXAMPLES
     The following sets “chararray” to “abc\0\0\0”:

	   (void)strncpy(chararray, "abc", 6).

     The following sets “chararray” to “abcdef”:

	   (void)strncpy(chararray, "abcdefgh", 6);

SEE ALSO
     bcopy(3), memccpy(3), memcpy(3), memmove(3)

STANDARDS
     The strcpy() and strncpy() functions conform to ANSI X3.159-1989
     (“ANSI C89”).
