pub const fn null<T: ?Sized + Thin>() -> *const T
Expand description

Creates a null raw pointer.

This function is equivalent to zero-initializing the pointer: MaybeUninit::<*const T>::zeroed().assume_init(). The resulting pointer has the address 0.


use std::ptr;

let p: *const i32 = ptr::null();
assert_eq!(p as usize, 0); // this pointer has the address 0
