empty_string - Universal string NULL terminator. Allegro game programming library. SYNOPSIS
#include <allegro.h> extern char empty_string[]; DESCRIPTION
You can't just rely on "" to be a valid empty string in any encoding format. This global buffer contains a number of consecutive zeros, so it will be a valid empty string no matter whether the program is running in ASCII, Unicode, or UTF-8 mode. Allegro version 4.4.2 empty_string(3alleg4)
