Defined in header
Allocates memory for an array of
num objects of size
size and initializes it to all bits zero.
If allocation succeeds, returns a pointer to the lowest (first) byte in the allocated memory block that is suitably aligned for any object type.
size is zero, the behavior is implementation defined (null pointer may be returned, or some non-null pointer may be returned that may not be used to access storage)
|num||-||number of objects|
|size||-||size of each object|
 Return value
Pointer to the beginning of newly allocated memory or NULL if error has occurred. The pointer must be deallocated with free().
Due to the alignment requirements, the number of allocated bytes is not necessarily equal to
Initialization to all bits zero does not guarantee that a floating-point or a pointer would be initialized to 0.0 and the null pointer value, respectively (although that is true on all common platforms)
