NAME
stpncpy - copy a fixed-size string, returning a pointer to its end SYNOPSIS
#include <string.h> char *stpncpy(char *dest, const char *src, size_t n); Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): stpncpy(): Since glibc 2.10: _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200809L Before glibc 2.10: _GNU_SOURCE DESCRIPTION
The stpncpy() function copies at most n characters from the string pointed to by src, including the terminating null byte (''), to the array pointed to by dest. Exactly n characters are written at dest. If the length strlen(src) is smaller than n, the remaining characters in the array pointed to by dest are filled with null bytes (''), If the length strlen(src) is greater than or equal to n, the string pointed to by dest will not be null-terminated. The strings may not overlap. The programmer must ensure that there is room for at least n characters at dest. RETURN VALUE
stpncpy() returns a pointer to the terminating null byte in dest, or, if dest is not null-terminated, dest+n. ATTRIBUTES
