MEMSET(3) Library Functions Manual MEMSET(3) NAME memset -- write a byte to byte string LIBRARY Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS #include <string.h> void * memset(void *b, int c, size_t len); DESCRIPTION The memset() function writes len bytes of value c (converted to an unsigned char) to the string b. RETURN VALUES The memset() function returns the original value of b. Note that the compiler may optimize away a call to memset() if it can prove that the string will not be used by the program again, for example if it is allocated on the stack and about to out of scope. If you want to guarantee that zeros are written to memory, for example to sanitize a buffer holding a cryptographic secret, use explicit_memset(3). SEE ALSO bzero(3), explicit_memset(3), swab(3) STANDARDS The memset() function conforms to ANSI X3.159-1989 (``ANSI C89''). NetBSD 7.1.2 June 23, 2013 NetBSD 7.1.2
