SubjectRe: faster strcpy()
Hi there.

>> #define strcpy(a,b) (char *)memcpy(a,b,strlen(b))

Does it do that right? I have a feeling it fails to copy the
terminating \0 byte, thus leaving an unterminated string - remember
that strlen does NOT include the \0 in the count it returns...

Best wishes from Riley.
