I am trying to make a program in C but am running into problems with my input buffer storing characters that i dont want it to store. Is their a simple way to wipe this buffer clean every time i run though the loop i have it going through?

Regards,

Skull

yeah, I had a problem with that in my buffer in my telnet router program. Here's what I did:

ZeroMemory(&buffer[0], 4096);

Full code found at:

Thanks Mr. Rage

An Alternitvie solution that i found is the setbuf(); function in conjuncture with the fflush() funcition. The set buf allows you to use a user defined var as your inputbuffer with a size that you spefify. Then using the fflush() it will flush that buffer retruning the null character to the first slot.
