    If you're talking about an setting an array of integers so that each element equals 0...then you could use a For Loop, going from 0 to (N - 1), where N is the number of elements, and within the For Loop you can set Element[N] = 0.

    What do you mean by empty?

    Empty as in no value, it's for a char and an int array, so I can write over it with a smaller string, but not have the end of the old one print out.

    You can use memset for char or int arrays, but if you're using C++ you should be using strings or vectors which have clear() methods.

    would setting all of their values to 0 not be good enough?
