memmove
total 5224252
[snip]

forward copy
value |-------------------------------------------------- count
     0 |@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@  980253


backward copy
value |-------------------------------------------------- count
     0 |@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@  4243999

the backward copy is much more than the forward copy.
