Synopsis

        #include <wchar.h>

DESCRIPTION

The wmemcpy() function is the wide-character equivalent of the memcpy(3) function. It copies n wide characters from the array starting at src to the array starting at dest.

The programmer must ensure that there is room for at least n wide characters at dest.
