NAME
       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
       None.

ATTRIBUTES
   Multithreading (see pthreads(7))
       The bcopy() function is thread-safe.

CONFORMING TO
       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 mem-
       cpy(3) and memmove(3).  POSIX.1-2008 removes the specification of bcopy().
