NAME
bcopy -- copy byte string
LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
SYNOPSIS
#include <strings.h> void bcopy(const void *src, void *dst, size_t len);
DESCRIPTION
The bcopy() function copies len bytes from string src to string dst. The two strings may overlap. If len is zero, no bytes are copied. This function is obsolete. The functions memcpy(3) and/or memmove(3) should be used instead. Note that bcopy() takes its src and dst argu- ments in the opposite order from these.
SEE ALSO
memccpy(3), memcpy(3), memmove(3), strcpy(3), strncpy(3)
STANDARDS
