mtext_ncpy(3m17n)		 Version 1.5.5		     mtext_ncpy(3m17n)

NAME
       mtext_ncpy - Copy the first some	characters in an M-text	to another.

SYNOPSIS
       MText* mtext_ncpy (MText	* mt1, MText * mt2, int	n)

DESCRIPTION
       Copy the	first some characters in an M-text to another.

       The mtext_ncpy()	function copies	the first n characters of M-text mt2
       to M-text mt1 while inheriting all the text properties. If the length
       of mt2 is less than n, all characters of	mt2 are	copied.	The old	text
       in mt1 is overwritten and the length of mt1 is extended if necessary.
       mt2 is not modified.

RETURN VALUE
	   If the operation was	successful, mtext_ncpy() returns a pointer to
	   the resulting M-text	mt1.  If an error is detected, it returns NULL
	   and assigns an error	code to	the global variable merror_code.

ERRORS
	   MERROR_RANGE
