PROLOG
This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the correspond- ing Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux. NAME
wmemcpy -- copy wide characters in memory SYNOPSIS
#include <wchar.h> wchar_t *wmemcpy(wchar_t *restrict ws1, const wchar_t *restrict ws2, size_t n); DESCRIPTION
The functionality described on this reference page is aligned with the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the requirements described here and the ISO C standard is unintentional. This volume of POSIX.1-2008 defers to the ISO C standard. The wmemcpy() function shall copy n wide characters from the object pointed to by ws2 to the object pointed to by ws1. This function shall not be affected by locale and all wchar_t values shall be treated identically. The null wide character and wchar_t values not corresponding to valid characters shall not be treated specially. If n is zero, the application shall ensure that ws1 and ws2 are valid pointers, and the function shall copy zero wide characters. RETURN VALUE
The wmemcpy() function shall return the value of ws1. ERRORS
No errors are defined. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES

wmemmove -- copy wide characters in memory with overlapping areas SYNOPSIS
#include <wchar.h> wchar_t *wmemmove(wchar_t *ws1, const wchar_t *ws2, size_t n); DESCRIPTION
The functionality described on this reference page is aligned with the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the requirements described here and the ISO C standard is unintentional. This volume of POSIX.1-2008 defers to the ISO C standard. The wmemmove() function shall copy n wide characters from the object pointed to by ws2 to the object pointed to by ws1. Copying shall take place as if the n wide characters from the object pointed to by ws2 are first copied into a temporary array of n wide characters that does not overlap the objects pointed to by ws1 or ws2, and then the n wide characters from the temporary array are copied into the object pointed to by ws1. This function shall not be affected by locale and all wchar_t values shall be treated identically. The null wide character and wchar_t val- ues not corresponding to valid characters shall not be treated specially. If n is zero, the application shall ensure that ws1 and ws2 are valid pointers, and the function shall copy zero wide characters. RETURN VALUE
The wmemmove() function shall return the value of ws1. ERRORS
