strcat, strncat - concatenate two strings


#include <string.h> char *strcat(char *dest, const char *src); char *strncat(char *dest, const char *src, size_t n);


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.


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