mtext_cpy(3) Copy an M-text to another.


MText* mtext_cpy (MText * mt1, MText * mt2)


Copy an M-text to another. The mtext_cpy() function copies M-text mt2 to M-text mt1 while inheriting all the text properties. The old text in mt1 is overwritten and the length of mt1 is extended if necessary. mt2 is not modified.


This function returns a pointer to the resulting M-text mt1.
