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

NAME         top

       wcscat - concatenate two wide-character strings

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <wchar.h>

       wchar_t *wcscat(wchar_t *restrict dest, const wchar_t *restrict src);

DESCRIPTION         top

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

       The strings may not overlap.

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

RETURN VALUE         top

       wcscat() returns dest.
