In using the new operator in C++ I cannot find whether it is guaranteed
to initialize the new memory to zero or not. In playing with it, it
looks like it does, but that might be coincidence. Does anyone know a
source of information on the net regarding this? Another question
regarding sources of information on C++. man has section 3 which is a
good source of information for regular C. Does anyone know of anything
like that for C++? It sure would come in handy now and then.
