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

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

NAME
       strcat, strncat - concatenate two strings

SYNOPSIS
       #include <string.h>

       char *strcat(char *dest, const char *src);

       char *strncat(char *dest, const char *src, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The strcat() function appends the src string to the dest string overwriting the `\0' char-
       acter at the end of dest, and then adds a terminating `\0' character.  The strings may not
       overlap, and the dest string must have enough space for the result.

       The  strncat()  function  is  similar,  except that only the first n characters of src are
       appended to dest.

RETURN VALUE
       The strcat() and strncat() functions return a pointer to the resulting string dest.

CONFORMING TO
