NAME

ustrncpy - Copies a string into another one, specifying size. Allegro game programming library.

SYNOPSIS

#include <allegro.h>

char *ustrncpy(char *dest, const char *src, int n);

DESCRIPTION

This function is like ustrcpy() except that no more than `n' characters from `src' are copied into `dest'. If `src' is shorter than `n' characters, null characters are appended to `dest' as padding until `n' characters have been written.

Note that if `src' is longer than `n' characters, `dest' will not be null-terminated.

RETURN VALUE

The return value is the value of `dest'.
