NAME
ustrncpy - Copies a string into another one, specifying size. Allegro game programming library. SYNOPSIS
#include <allegro.h> char *ustrncpy(char *dest, const char *src, int n); DESCRIPTION
This function is like ustrcpy() except that no more than `n' characters from `src' are copied into `dest'. If `src' is shorter than `n' characters, null characters are appended to `dest' as padding until `n' characters have been written. Note that if `src' is longer than `n' characters, `dest' will not be null-terminated. RETURN VALUE
The return value is the value of `dest'. SEE ALSO
uconvert(3alleg4), ustrcpy(3alleg4), ustrzncpy(3alleg4) Allegro version 4.4.2 ustrncpy(3alleg4)

NAME
ustrzncpy - Copies a string into another one, specifying size. Allegro game programming library. SYNOPSIS
#include <allegro.h> char *ustrzncpy(char *dest, int size, const char *src, int n); DESCRIPTION
This function is like ustrzcpy() except that no more than `n' characters from `src' are copied into `dest' whose length in bytes is speci- fied by `size' and which is guaranteed to be null-terminated even if `src' is bigger than `size'. If `src' is shorter than `n' characters, null characters are appended to `dest' as padding until `n' characters have been written. In any case, `dest' is guaranteed to be null-ter- minated. Note that, even for empty strings, your destination string must have at least enough bytes to store the terminating null character of the string, and your parameter `size' must reflect this. Otherwise, the debug version of Allegro will abort at an assertion, and the release version of Allegro will overrun the destination buffer. RETURN VALUE
The return value is the value of `dest'. SEE ALSO

What is the point of this? Whenever I close my shell it appends to the history file without adding this. I have never seen it overwrite my history file. # When the shell exits, append to the history file instead of overwriting it shopt -s histappend (3 Replies)
