Where does the 'a' in 'stracpy' come from? Googling around finds other
people using a function called stracpy, but it takes different arguments.
http://stracpy.blogspot.com/ takes a size argument, as does
https://docs.polserver.com/doxygen/html/d5/dce/stracpy_8cpp_source.html

The one in the 'Links' webbrowser (can't find a link to its source) seems
like a strdup clone.
