Date: 2004aug22 Platform: win32 Level: beginnner Q. What's the best way (in win32) to clear memory? A. In ye olden days I used to code:memset(&MyStruct, 0, sizeof(MyStruct));Now I write:ZeroMemory(&MyStruct, sizeof(MyStruct));Which is on character longer but reads nicer. This is defined in the Win32 headers as:#define ZeroMemory(Destination,Length) memset((Destination),0,(Length))Linux has:bzero(&MyStruct, sizeof(MyStruct));Sadly bzero is deprecated so you can define it:#ifndef bzero #define bzero(_d, _n) memset((_d), 0, (_n)) #endif
