WCSNCPY(3) Linux Programmer's Manual WCSNCPY(3)NAMEwcsncpy - copy a fixed-size string of wide characters
wchar_t *wcsncpy(wchar_t *dest, const wchar_t *src, size_t n);
The wcsncpy() function is the wide-character equivalent of the
strncpy(3) function. It copies at most n wide characters from the
wide-character string pointed to by src, including the terminating
L'\0' character, to the array pointed to by dest. Exactly n wide char‐
acters are written at dest. If the length wcslen(src) is smaller than
n, the remaining wide characters in the array pointed to by dest are
filled with L'\0' characters. If the length wcslen(src) is greater or
equal to n, the string pointed to by dest will not be L'\0' terminated.
The strings may not overlap.
The programmer must ensure that there is room for at least n wide char‐
acters at dest.
RETURN VALUEwcsncpy() returns dest.
