STRCAT(3)		   Linux Programmer's Manual		     STRCAT(3)

NAME
       strcat, strncat - concatenate two strings

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<string.h>

       char *strcat(char *dest,	const char *src);

       char *strncat(char *dest, const char *src, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The  strcat()  function appends the src string to the dest string over-
       writing the `\0'	character at the end of	dest, and then adds  a	termi-
       nating  `\0'  character.	  The  strings	may  not overlap, and the dest
       string must have	enough space for the result.

       The strncat() function is similar, except that only the first n charac-
       ters of src are appended	to dest.

RETURN VALUE
       The  strcat() and strncat() functions return a pointer to the resulting
       string dest.

CONFORMING TO
       SVID 3, POSIX, BSD 4.3, ISO 9899
