DESCRIPTION

The wcpcpy() function is the wide-character equivalent of the stpcpy(3) function. It copies the wide-character string pointed to by src, including the terminating null wide character (L_zsingle_quotesz__zsingle_quotesz_), to the array pointed to by dest.

The strings may not overlap.

The programmer must ensure that there is room for at least wcslen(src)+1 wide characters at dest.

RETURN VALUE

wcpcpy() returns a pointer to the end of the wide-character string dest, that is, a pointer to the terminating null wide character.
