MEMCPY(3) FreeBSD Library Functions Manual MEMCPY(3)

memcpy
copy byte string

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

#include <string.h>
void *
memcpy(void *dst, const void *src, size_t len);

The memcpy() function copies len bytes from string src to string dst. If src and dst overlap, the results are not defined.

The memcpy() function returns the original value of dst.

bcopy(3), memccpy(3), memmove(3), strcpy(3), wmemcpy(3)

The memcpy() function conforms to ISO/IEC 9899:1990 (“ISO C90”).

In this implementation memcpy() is implemented using bcopy(3), and therefore the strings may overlap. On other systems, copying overlapping strings may produce surprises. Programs intended to be portable should use memmove(3) when src and dst may overlap.
June 4, 1993 FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE
