This is the form of malloc that pretty much no one uses. It takes two size_t args, and is equivalent to doing a malloc of the first arg times the second. The memory is set to zero.

	int *foo = calloc( 5, sizeof(int) );
	/* an array of 5 integers */
Most people don't use this, and instead do:
	int *foo = malloc( 5*sizeof(int) );
