    Exclamation Does not work strcpy() function. -> incompatible implicit declaration of strcpy......

    I have a problem with the strcpy function. i think that we use it like this but there is a mistake...why?

    Is this wrong?
    Code:
    strcpy(new_buf, old_buf);
    if i want to put the old_buf="hi_my_old_man" into the new_buf which is empty in the beginning.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
    	int choice;
    	char buf[40];
    		printf("Before strcpy: %s\n", buf);
    		strcpy(buf,"This is the end my friend");
    		printf("After: %s\n", buf);
    	return 0;
    }

    It's not empty, it has random crap in it. But your actual problem is that you haven't included string.h.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
