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

NAME         top

       wcsncat - concatenate two wide-character strings

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <wchar.h>

       wchar_t *wcsncat(wchar_t *restrict dest, const wchar_t *restrict src,
                        size_t n);

DESCRIPTION         top

       The wcsncat() function is the wide-character equivalent of the
       strncat(3) function.  It copies at most n wide characters from
       the wide-character string pointed to by src to the end of the
       wide-character string pointed to by dest, and adds a terminating
       null wide character (L'\0').

       The strings may not overlap.

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

RETURN VALUE         top

       wcsncat() returns dest.
