bcopy - copy byte sequence SYNOPSIS
#include <strings.h> void bcopy(const void *src, void *dest, size_t n); DESCRIPTION
The bcopy() function copies n bytes from src to dest. The result is correct, even when both areas overlap. RETURN VALUE
4.3BSD. This function is deprecated (marked as LEGACY in POSIX.1-2001): use memcpy(3) or memmove(3) in new programs. Note that the first two arguments are interchanged for memcpy(3) and memmove(3). POSIX.1-2008 removes the specification of bcopy(). SEE ALSO
memccpy(3), memcpy(3), memmove(3), strcpy(3), strncpy(3) COLOPHON
