RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for stpncpy (redhat section 3)

STPNCPY(3)			    Linux Programmer's Manual			       STPNCPY(3)

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);

DESCRIPTION
       The  stpncpy  function  copies  at  most  n  characters from the string pointed to by src,
       including the terminating '\0' character, to the array pointed to by dest. Exactly n char-
       acters  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 '\0' characters. If the  length
       strlen(src)  is greater or equal to n, the string pointed to by dest will not be '\0' ter-
       minated.

       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 in dest, or, if dest is not  null-termi-
       nated, dest + n.

CONFORMING TO
       This function is a GNU extension.
