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



NAME
       wcscpy - copy a wide-character string

SYNOPSIS
       #include <wchar.h>

       wchar_t *wcscpy(wchar_t *dest, const wchar_t *src);

DESCRIPTION
       The wcscpy() function is the wide-character equivalent of the strcpy(3)
       function.  It copies the wide-character string pointed to by src,
       including the terminating null wide character (L'\0'), to the array
       pointed to by dest.

       The strings may not overlap.

       The programmer must ensure that there is room for at least
       wcslen(src)+1 wide characters at dest.

RETURN VALUE
       wcscpy() returns dest.
