NAME
stpcpy - copy a string returning a pointer to its end SYNOPSIS
#define _GNU_SOURCE #include <string.h> char *stpcpy(char *dest, const char *src); DESCRIPTION
The stpcpy() function copies the string pointed to by src (including the terminating '' character) to the array pointed to by dest. The strings may not overlap, and the destination string dest must be large enough to receive the copy. RETURN VALUE
stpcpy() returns a pointer to the end of the string dest (that is, the address of the terminating null byte) rather than the beginning. CONFORMING TO
This function is not part of the C or POSIX.1 standards, and is not customary on Unix systems, but is not a GNU invention either. Perhaps it comes from MS-DOS. Nowadays, it is also present on the BSDs. EXAMPLE
For example, this program uses stpcpy() to concatenate foo and bar to produce foobar, which it then prints. #define _GNU_SOURCE #include <string.h> #include <stdio.h> int main(void) { char buffer[20]; char *to = buffer; to = stpcpy(to, "foo"); to = stpcpy(to, "bar"); printf("%s ", buffer); } BUGS
This function may overrun the buffer dest. SEE ALSO

NAME
stpcpy - copy a string returning a pointer to its end SYNOPSIS
#include <string.h> char *stpcpy(char *dest, const char *src); Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): stpcpy(): Since glibc 2.10: _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 700 || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200809L Before glibc 2.10: _GNU_SOURCE DESCRIPTION
The stpcpy() function copies the string pointed to by src (including the terminating null byte ('')) to the array pointed to by dest. The strings may not overlap, and the destination string dest must be large enough to receive the copy. RETURN VALUE
stpcpy() returns a pointer to the end of the string dest (that is, the address of the terminating null byte) rather than the beginning. CONFORMING TO
This function was added to POSIX.1-2008. Before that, it was not part of the C or POSIX.1 standards, nor customary on UNIX systems, but was not a GNU invention either. Perhaps it came from MS-DOS. It is also present on the BSDs. BUGS
This function may overrun the buffer dest. EXAMPLE
