NAME
       wcsncpy - copy part of a wide-character string

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wchar.h>

       wchar_t *wcsncpy(wchar_t *restrict ws1, const wchar_t *restrict ws2,
	      size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The  wcsncpy()  function  shall	copy not more than n wide-character codes (wide-character
       codes that follow a null wide-character code are not copied) from the array pointed to  by
       ws2  to	the array pointed to by ws1. If copying takes place between objects that overlap,
       the behavior is undefined.

       If the array pointed to by ws2 is a wide-character string that is  shorter  than  n  wide-
       character  codes,  null	wide-character	codes  shall be appended to the copy in the array
       pointed to by ws1, until n wide-character codes in all are written.

RETURN VALUE
       The wcsncpy() function shall return ws1; no return value is reserved to indicate an error.

ERRORS
       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.

EXAMPLES
       None.

APPLICATION USAGE
       If there is no null wide-character code in the first n wide-character codes of  the  array
       pointed to by ws2, the result is not null-terminated.

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       None.
