MEMCCPY(3)               BSD Library Functions Manual               MEMCCPY(3)

     memccpy -- copy string until character found

     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

     #include <string.h>

     void *
     memccpy(void *restrict s1, const void *restrict s2, int c, size_t n);

     The memccpy() function copies bytes from string s2 to string s1.  If the
     character c (as converted to an unsigned char) occurs in the string s2,
     the copy stops and a pointer to the byte after the copy of c in the
     string s1 is returned.  Otherwise, n bytes are copied, and a NULL pointer
     is returned.

     bcopy(3), memcpy(3), memmove(3), strcpy(3)

     The memccpy() function first appeared in 4.4BSD.
