Subject: strcpy compared to POSIX strcpy
Date: Mon, 29 Jun 2020 14:41:40 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi Michael,

Returning to an old topic, noticed strcpy man page is different from the POSIX spec with regards to "terminating NUL character" or "null-terminated" shouldn't man pages should follow POSIX style writing "NUL"?

Another function even has nul in the name

Regards, Jonny
