STRNCAT(3P)               POSIX Programmer's Manual              STRNCAT(3P)

PROLOG         top

       This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual.  The Linux
       implementation of this interface may differ (consult the
       corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or
       the interface may not be implemented on Linux.

NAME         top

       strncat — concatenate a string with part of another

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <string.h>

       char *strncat(char *restrict s1, const char *restrict s2, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The functionality described on this reference page is aligned with
       the ISO C standard. Any conflict between the requirements described
       here and the ISO C standard is unintentional. This volume of
       POSIX.1‐2008 defers to the ISO C standard.

       The strncat() function shall append not more than n bytes (a NUL
       character and bytes that follow it are not appended) from the array
       pointed to by s2 to the end of the string pointed to by s1.  The
       initial byte of s2 overwrites the NUL character at the end of s1.  A
       terminating NUL character is always appended to the result. If
       copying takes place between objects that overlap, the behavior is
       undefined.

RETURN VALUE         top

       The strncat() function shall return s1; no return value shall be
       reserved to indicate an error.

ERRORS         top

       No errors are defined.

       The following sections are informative.
