We are assuming that the c compilers are following the standard. I was
told a long time ago, 1994 to be exact, that if we want to insure that a
variable has a certain value to initialize it to that value. This
applies if we want a zero or a NULL.
int a = 0;
char b = NULL;
bool c = TRUE;
Without this, we cannot assume anything.
