What is the difference between "calloc" and "malloc"?..

Answer / saugat biswas

Malloc:
Malloc allocates memory but does not initialize it.
Example: char *szPtr = ( char* ) malloc( sizeof( char ) *
100 );
Here szPtr is assigned 100 bytes. But the memory is not
initialized. It contains garbage.

Calloc:
Allocates a block of memory for an array of 'n' elements,
each of them 'l' bytes long, and initializes all its bits
to zero.
Example: char *szPtr = ( char* ) calloc( 100, sizeof(
char ));
Here szPtr is assigned 100 bytes & the memory is
initialized to 0.

class A { public: void f(); protected: A() {} A(const A&){} }; Examine the class declaration shown above. Why are the default and copy constructors declared as protected? 1. To ensure that A cannot be created via new by a more derived class 2. To ensure that A cannot be copied 3. To ensure that A cannot be used as a base class except when public inheritance has been used 4. To ensure that A cannot be created/copied outside the inheritance chain 5. To ensure that A cannot be instantiated as a static variable
