NAME
       wcsncpy - copy a fixed-size string of wide characters

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wchar.h>

       wchar_t *wcsncpy(wchar_t *dest, const wchar_t *src, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The  wcsncpy  function is the wide-character equivalent of the strncpy function. It copies
       at most n wide characters from the wide-character string pointed to by src, including  the
       terminating  L'\0'  character,  to the array pointed to by dest. Exactly n wide characters
       are written at dest. If the length wcslen(src) is smaller than n, the remaining wide char-
       acters  in  the	array  pointed to by dest are filled with L'\0' characters. If the length
       wcslen(src) is greater or equal to n, the string pointed to by dest will not be L'\0' ter-
       minated.

       The strings may not overlap.

       The programmer must ensure that there is room for at least n wide characters at dest.

RETURN VALUE
       wcsncpy returns dest.
