Hello, reallocarray and recallocarray are BSD extensions that solve similar issues as strlcpy/strlcat, but with array reallocations instead of strings. reallocarray itself is already part of glibc since 2.28. Unfortunately, while working on new ifupdown implementation for Alpine, I wanted to use recallocarray because it is very helpful in terms of pushing new strings to a string array (you will always maintain a NULL-terminated array, and you don't have to worry about it) -- but I discovered musl still does not have it. Anyway, I think it would be useful to include both functions in musl 1.2.1. If everyone agrees, I'll make a patch. Ariadne
