memccpy(3)               BSD Library Functions Manual               memccpy(3)


NAME

     memccpy -- copy string until character found


LIBRARY

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)


SYNOPSIS

     #include <string.h>

     void *
     memccpy(void *restrict dst, const void *restrict src, int c, size_t n);


DESCRIPTION

     The memccpy() function copies bytes from string src to string dst.  If
     the character c (as converted to an unsigned char) occurs in the string
     src, the copy stops and a pointer to the byte after the copy of c in the
     string dst is returned.  Otherwise, n bytes are copied, and a NULL
     pointer is returned.

     The source and destination strings should not overlap, as the behavior is
     undefined.


SEE ALSO

     bcopy(3), memcpy(3), memmove(3), strcpy(3)


HISTORY

     The memccpy() function first appeared in 4.4BSD.
