bzero/bcopy : undefined

Hello.        
I tried to compile some code (MSVC) with the following fragment.

bzero( k_opad, sizeof k_opad);
bcopy( key, k_ipad, key_len);

Visual studio don't seems to know those two functions. In which header file are they defined??

#include <strings.h>

MSVC might not have it

in that case I suggest using the C string library
#include <string.h>
instead
and use these functions:
 memset(memory, 0, size);
 memcpy(destination, src, length);

use memmove instead of memcpy  (if the memory areas are allowed to overlap)

Or if you want to think of this in terms of macros s. like...

#define bzero(memArea, len)  memset((memArea), 0, (len))
#define bcopy(memSrc, memDst, memLen) \
                    memcpy((memDst), (memSrc), (memLen))

Thanks. It works indeed.
(ps.: do you happen to know if this is correct: "#define caddr_t char*" (maybe both bzero and caddr_t are linux command/structures (????))
