[ale] compile error: strlcpy defined differently in 2 different files, huh ?



Joe,

Three things.....

The last line of my previous post should have read "or" instead of "of".

I don't understand why the application would be using an externally 
defined strlcpy if it had an internal definition ?

If your nonpareil compiled and mine won't, then your 
/usr/include/string.h must have a different definition of strlcpy than mine.

What is yours, please ?

Thanks again,
Courtney
