But one of the arguments is that programmers should be concerned about the
effect of truncation. strlcpy make it easier than strncpy to check for
truncation too, and strcpy_s (part of VC2005 libraries) refuse to copy the
string at all if the string is going to be truncated. You must use strncpy_s
with _TRUNCATE in the count parameter.
