NAME
       bcopy - copy byte sequence

SYNOPSIS
       #include <strings.h>

       void bcopy(const void *src, void *dest, size_t n);

DESCRIPTION
       The bcopy() function copies n bytes from src to dest.  The result is correct, even when both areas overlap.

RETURN VALUE
       None.

CONFORMING TO
       4.3BSD.   This  function  is  deprecated (marked as LEGACY in POSIX.1-2001): use memcpy(3) or memmove(3) in new
       programs.  Note that the first two arguments are  interchanged  for  memcpy(3)  and  memmove(3).   POSIX.1-2008
       removes the specification of bcopy().

SEE ALSO
       memccpy(3), memcpy(3), memmove(3), strcpy(3), strncpy(3)
