NAME

strcat, strncat − concatenate two strings

SYNOPSIS

#include <string.h>

char *strcat(char *dest, const char *src);

char *strncat(char *dest, const char *src, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION

The strcat() function appends the src string to the dest string overwriting the ‘\0’ character at the end of dest, and then adds a terminating ‘\0’ character. The strings may not overlap, and the dest string must have enough space for the result.

The strncat() function is similar, except that only the first n characters of src are appended to dest.

RETURN VALUE

The strcat() and strncat() functions return a pointer to the resulting string dest.
