To be slightly more precise, the reason that the original pointer
suggests using memset is because bzero() is a BSD-ism, and is not found
on non-BSD based systems (ie Solaris).  In fact, in the latest release
of a certain BSD related C library, bzero() is merely a macro for memset()

Whem man pages suggest an alternative, use it.  :)
