( c-addr1 c-addr2 u -- )

If u is greater than zero, copy u consecutive characters from the data space starting at c-addr1 to that starting at c-addr2, proceeding character-by-character from higher addresses to lower addresses.

See:

Rationale:

If c-addr1 lies within the destination region (i.e., when c-addr1 is greater than or equal to c-addr2 and c-addr2 is less than the quantity c-addr1 u CHARS +), memory propagation occurs.

Assume a character string at address 100: "ABCD". Then after

the string at address 100 is "DDDD".
