Hi Dan

Okay, no, it was me who missed it, not cppcheck.

Ensuring that from string will fit was an unusual solution.
If I see code where an effort is made to ensure that no more than x
characters copied I react to it.
But it is zeroing of the string you were looking for then. Ok sorry :-(

Kind regards
