wcsdup - duplicate a wide-character string SYNOPSIS
#include <wchar.h> wchar_t *wcsdup(const wchar_t *s); Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): wcsdup(): Since glibc 2.10: _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200809L Before glibc 2.10: _GNU_SOURCE DESCRIPTION
The wcsdup() function is the wide-character equivalent of the strdup(3) function. It allocates and returns a new wide-character string whose initial contents is a duplicate of the wide-character string pointed to by s. Memory for the new wide-character string is obtained with malloc(3), and should be freed with free(3). RETURN VALUE
On success, wcsdup() returns a pointer to the new wide-character string. On error, it returns NULL, with errno set to indicate the cause of the error. ERRORS
ENOMEM Insufficient memory available to allocate duplicate string. ATTRIBUTES

wcsdup -- duplicate a wide-character string SYNOPSIS
#include <wchar.h> wchar_t *wcsdup(const wchar_t *string); DESCRIPTION
The wcsdup() function is the wide-character equivalent of the strdup() function. The wcsdup() function shall return a pointer to a new wide-character string, allocated as if by a call to malloc(), which is the duplicate of the wide-character string string. The returned pointer can be passed to free(). A null pointer is returned if the new wide-character string cannot be created. RETURN VALUE
Upon successful completion, the wcsdup() function shall return a pointer to the newly allocated wide-character string. Otherwise, it shall return a null pointer and set errno to indicate the error. ERRORS
The wcsdup() function shall fail if: ENOMEM Memory large enough for the duplicate string could not be allocated. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
For functions that allocate memory as if by malloc(), the application should release such memory when it is no longer required by a call to free(). For wcsdup(), this is the return value. RATIONALE
