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 dst, const void *restrict src, int c, size_t n);

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

     The source and destination strings should not overlap, as the behavior is undefined.

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

     The memccpy() function first appeared in 4.4BSD.

BSD                              June 9, 1993                              BSD
