MirOS Manual: memcpy(3)

MEMCPY(3)                  BSD Programmer's Manual                   MEMCPY(3)

NAME

     memcpy - copy bytes

SYNOPSIS

     #include <string.h>

     void *
     memcpy(void *dst, const void *src, size_t len);

DESCRIPTION

     The memcpy() function copies len bytes from buffer src to buffer dst.

RETURN VALUES

     The memcpy() function returns the original value of dst.

SEE ALSO

     bcopy(3), memccpy(3), memmove(3), strcpy(3), strlcpy(3)

STANDARDS

     The memcpy() function conforms to ANSI X3.159-1989 ("ANSI C").

BUGS

     In this implementation memcpy() is implemented using bcopy(3), and there-
     fore the buffers may overlap. On other systems, copying overlapping
     buffers may produce surprises. A simpler solution is to not use memcpy().
