MEMCCPY(P)			    POSIX Programmer's Manual			       MEMCCPY(P)

NAME
       memccpy - copy bytes in memory

SYNOPSIS
       #include <string.h>

       void *memccpy(void *restrict s1, const void *restrict s2,
	      int c, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The  memccpy()  function  shall copy bytes from memory area s2 into s1, stopping after the
       first occurrence of byte c (converted to an unsigned char) is copied, or after n bytes are
       copied,	whichever  comes  first. If copying takes place between objects that overlap, the
       behavior is undefined.

RETURN VALUE
       The memccpy() function shall return a pointer to the byte after the copy of c in s1, or	a
       null pointer if c was not found in the first n bytes of s2.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.

APPLICATION USAGE

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
