std::strncat (3) - Linux Man Pages

std::strncat: std::strncat

NAME

std::strncat - std::strncat

Synopsis


Defined in header <cstring>
char *strncat( char *dest, const char *src, std::size_t count );


Appends a byte string pointed to by src to a byte string pointed to by dest. At most count characters are copied. The resulting byte string is null-terminated.
The destination byte string must have enough space for the contents of both dest and src plus the terminating null character, except that the size of src is limited to count.
The behavior is undefined if the strings overlap.

Parameters


dest - pointer to the null-terminated byte string to append to
src - pointer to the null-terminated byte string to copy from
count - maximum number of characters to copy

Return value


dest

Example


// Run this code


  #include <cstring>
  #include <cstdio>


  int main()
  {
      char str[50] = "Hello ";
      char str2[50] = "World!";
      std::strcat(str, str2);
      std::strncat(str, " Goodbye World!", 3);
      std::puts(str);
  }

Output:


  Hello World! Go
