    void *memmove(void *DST, const void *SRC, size_t LENGTH);   This  function moves LENGTH characters from the block of memory start-   ing at `*SRC' to the memory starting at `*DST'.  `memmove'  reproduces   the characters correctly at `*DST' even if the two areas overlap.   void* memcpy(void *OUT, const void *IN, size_t N);    This  function  copies N bytes from the memory region pointed to by IN   to the memory region pointed to by OUT.    If the regions overlap, the behavior is undefined.
