NAME
     bcopy -- copy byte string

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/systm.h>

     void
     bcopy(const void *src, void *dst, size_t len);

DESCRIPTION
     The bcopy() interface is obsolete.  Do not add new code using it.	It will soon be purged.
     Use memcpy(9) instead.  (The bcopy() function is now a macro for memcpy(9).)

     The bcopy() function copies len bytes from string src to string dst.

     Unlike bcopy(3) the two strings must not overlap!	In the traditional BSD kernel, overlap-
     ping copies were handled by the now-purged ovbcopy() function.  If you need to copy overlap-
     ping data, see memmove(9).

     If len is zero, no bytes are copied.
