memset(3), swab(3) HISTORY
A bzero() function appeared in 4.3BSD. Its prototype existed previously in <string.h> before it was moved to <strings.h> for IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'') compliance. bzero() was deprecated in IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'') and removed in IEEE Std 1003.1-2008 (``POSIX.1''). BSD

bzero - memory operations (LEGACY) SYNOPSIS
#include <strings.h> void bzero(void *s, size_t n); DESCRIPTION
The bzero() function shall place n zero-valued bytes in the area pointed to by s. RETURN VALUE
The bzero() function shall not return a value. ERRORS
No errors are defined. The following sections are informative. EXAMPLES
The memset() function is preferred over this function. For maximum portability, it is recommended to replace the function call to bzero() as follows: #define bzero(b,len) (memset((b), '', (len)), (void) 0) RATIONALE
This function may be withdrawn in a future version. SEE ALSO
