zero_allocator

Summary

Template class for allocator that returns zeroed memory.

Syntax

template <typename T,
          template<typename U> class Alloc = tbb_allocator>
class zero_allocator: public Alloc<T>;

Description

A zero_allocator allocates zeroed memory. A zero_allocator<T,A> can be instantiated for any class A that models the Allocator concept. The default for A is tbb_allocator. A zero_allocator forwards allocation requests to A and zeros the allocation before returning it.
