Linux 2.6 - man page for strncat (linux section 3posix)

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

NAME
       strncat - concatenate a string with part of another

SYNOPSIS
       #include <string.h>

       char *strncat(char *restrict s1, const char *restrict s2, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The strncat() function shall append not more than n bytes (a null byte and bytes that fol-
       low it are not appended) from the array pointed to by s2 to the end of the string  pointed
       to  by s1. The initial byte of s2 overwrites the null byte at the end of s1. A terminating
       null byte is always appended to the result. If copying takes place  between  objects  that
       overlap, the behavior is undefined.

RETURN VALUE
       The  strncat()  function shall return s1; no return value shall be reserved to indicate an
       error.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.
