Sets all wide characters in a memory block to a given value

#include <wchar.h>
wchar_t *wmemset ( wchar_t *buffer , wchar_t c , size_t n  );

The memset( ) function sets each wide character in a block of n wide characters to the value c, beginning at the address in dest. The return value is the same as the pointer argument dest.


#define BLOCKSIZE 2048             // Size as a number of wchar_t elements.
wchar_t *inputblock;

if (( inputblock = malloc( BLOCKSIZE * sizeof(wchar_t))) != NULL )
  wmemset( inputblock, L'~', BLOCKSIZE );
/* ... */
