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
       overwriting the ‘\0’ character at the end of  dest,  and  then  adds  a
       terminating  ‘\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
       characters of src are appended to dest.

RETURN VALUE

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