ustrncat(3)			Allegro	manual			   ustrncat(3)

NAME
       ustrncat	- Concatenates a string	to another one,	specifying size. Alle-
       gro game	programming library.

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<allegro.h>

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

DESCRIPTION
       This function is	like ustrcat() except that no more than	`n' characters
       from  `src'  are	appended to the	end of `dest'. If the terminating null
       character in `src' is reached before `n'	characters have	been  written,
       the  null  character is copied, but no other characters are written. If
       `n' characters are written before a terminating	null  is  encountered,
       the  function  appends  its own null character to `dest', so that `n+1'
       characters are written. You should try to avoid this  function  because
       it  is  very easy to overflow the destination buffer. Use ustrzncat in-
       stead.

RETURN VALUE
       The return value	is the value of	`dest'.
