NAME bcopy - copy byte sequence

SYNOPSIS #include <strings.h>

void bcopy(const void *src, void *dest, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION The bcopy() function copies n bytes from src to dest. The result is correct, even when both areas overlap.


CONFORMING TO 4.3BSD. This function is deprecated (marked as LEGACY in POSIX.1-2001): use memcpy(3) or memmove(3) in new programs. Note that the first two arguments are interchanged for memcpy(3) and memmove(3). POSIX.1-2008 removes the specification of bcopy().
