Defines: bmove()

bmove(dst, src, len) moves exactly "len" bytes from the source "src"
to the destination "dst". It does not check for NUL characters as
strncpy() and strnmov() do. Thus if your C compiler doesn't support
structure assignment, you can simulate it with
bmove(&to, &from, sizeof from);
The standard 4.2bsd routine for this purpose is bcopy. But as bcopy
has its first two arguments the other way around you may find this a
bit easier to get right.
No value is returned.

Note: the "b" routines are there to exploit certain VAX order codes,
but the MOVC3 instruction will only move 65535 characters. The asm
code is presented for your interest and amusement.

#include "strings.h"

#if VaxAsm

void bmove(dst, src, len)
char *dst, *src;
int len;
asm("movc3 12(ap),*8(ap),*4(ap)");

#else ~VaxAsm

void bmove(dst, src, len)
register char *dst, *src;
register int len;
while (--len >= 0) *dst++ = *src++;

#endif VaxAsm

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
