BZERO(9)               NetBSD Kernel Developer's Manual               BZERO(9)


NAME
bzero -- write zeroes to a byte string
SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/systm.h> void bzero(void *b, size_t len);
DESCRIPTION
The bzero() interface is obsolete. Do not add new code using it. It will soon be purged. Use memset(9) instead. (The bzero() function is now a macro for memset(9).) The bzero() function writes len zero bytes to the string b. If len is zero, bzero() does nothing.
