mempcpy, wmempcpy - copy memory area

#define _GNU_SOURCE         /* See feature_test_macros(7) */
#include <string.h>
void *mempcpy(void *dest, const void *src, size_t n);
#define _GNU_SOURCE         /* See feature_test_macros(7) */
#include <wchar.h>
wchar_t *wmempcpy(wchar_t *dest, const wchar_t *src, size_t n);

The mempcpy() function is nearly identical to the memcpy(3) function. It copies n bytes from the object beginning at src into the object pointed to by dest. But instead of returning the value of dest it returns a pointer to the byte following the last written byte.

This function is useful in situations where a number of objects shall be copied to consecutive memory positions.

The wmempcpy() function is identical but takes wchar_t type arguments and copies n wide characters.

dest + n.

mempcpy() first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).

This function is a GNU extension.

combine(void *o1, size_t s1, void *o2, size_t s2)
    void *result = malloc(s1 + s2);
    if (result != NULL)
        mempcpy(mempcpy(result, o1, s1), o2, s2);
    return result;
