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

NAME
     bzero -- write zeroes to a byte string

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;sys/systm.h>&gt;

     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     The bzero() interface is obsolete.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.

SEE ALSO
     memset(9)
