NAME

       wcscpy - copy a wide-character string

SYNOPSIS

       #include <wchar.h>

       wchar_t *wcscpy(wchar_t *dest, const wchar_t *src);

DESCRIPTION

       The  wcscpy()  function  is  the  wide-character equivalent of the strcpy(3) function.  It
       copies the wide-character string pointed to by src, including the  terminating  null  wide
       character (L'\0'), to the array pointed to by dest.

       The strings may not overlap.

       The  programmer  must ensure that there is room for at least wcslen(src)+1 wide characters
       at dest.

RETURN VALUE

       wcscpy() returns dest.
