STRACAT(3)		     C Programmer's Manual		    STRACAT(3)

NAME
       stracat - concatenate many strings into an allocated memory block

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<publib.h>
       char *stracat(const char	*s, ...);

DESCRIPTION
       stracat will allocate a block of	memory with malloc and concatenate all
       arguments strings into this block.  The user is supposed	 to  free  the
       returned	 block.	  The  end of the argument list	is signalled by	a null
       pointer.

RETURN VALUE
       stracat returns a pointer to the	allocated block, or NULL if  it	 could
       not be allocated.

EXAMPLE
       To concatenate "hello, "	and "world", one might say the following.

	    p =	stracat("hello,	", "world", (char *)NULL);
	    if (p != NULL)
		 puts(p);

       Please note that	it is necessary	to case	NULL as	in the example above,
       since there is no information about the type of the argument available
       in the prototype, and since an unadorned	NULL might not be of the
       correct type.  (See any good C reference	book or	the comp.lang.c	FAQ for
       more information.)
