BZERO(3)                 BSD Library Functions Manual                 BZERO(3)

NAME
     bzero -- write zeroes to a byte string

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <strings.h>

     void
     bzero(void *b, size_t len);

DESCRIPTION
     The bzero() function writes len zero bytes to the string b.  If len is
     zero, bzero() does nothing.

SEE ALSO
     memset(3), swab(3)

STANDARDS
     The bzero() function conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').  The
     IEEE Std 1003.1-2004 (``POSIX.1'') revision marked it as legacy and
     recommended the use of memset(3) instead.  The IEEE Std 1003.1-2008
     (``POSIX.1'') revision removed bzero() from the specification.

HISTORY
     A bzero() function appeared in 4.3BSD.
