bzero - memory operations (LEGACY)
void bzero(void *s, size_t n);
The bzero() function shall place n zero-valued bytes in the area pointed to by s.
The bzero() function shall not return a value.
No errors are defined.
The following sections are informative.
The memset() function is preferred over this function.
For maximum portability, it is recommended to replace the function call to bzero() as fol-
#define bzero(b,len) (memset((b), '\0', (len)), (void) 0)
This function may be withdrawn in a future version.
