index Concatenate strings

char *
concat(out, in0, in1, ..., inN, 0);
char *out;
char *in0, in1, ... inN;

op = out;
for (argp = &inlist; (inp = *argp++) != NULL;) {
while ((*op++ = *inp++) != EOS)
op--; /* Backup to overwrite the EOS */
*op = EOS; /* Terminate output string even with null args */
return (out);
