Fast, Efficient and Easy Way to Initialize Local Arrays

Fast, Efficient and Easy Way to Initialize Local Arrays

Fast, Efficient and Easy Way to Initialize Local ArraysBy default, local data arrays created on the stack are not initialized; they contain garbage values. The easiest, most efficient and future-proof way to initialize them is as follows:

 	void f() {		char  name[100] = {0};  //all members initialized to ''		float farr[1024] = {0}; //all members initialized to 0.0		int   iarr[9999] = {0}; //all members initialized to 0.0		void *pvarr[100] = {0};//all members initialized to NULL	}//f()

And it even works for arrays of structs:

 	struct A { char name[20]; 			int age; /*other members*/ 		  };	void f() {		A a[100] = {0};		//...	}//f()

The only exception is arrays of objects, which cannot be initialized like this if they have a user-defined constructor.
