APPLICATION USAGE
       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), '\0', (len)), (void) 0)

RATIONALE
       None.

FUTURE DIRECTIONS
       This function may be withdrawn in a future version.
