What do you mean by similar? There are many ways to load a file
into memory before appending \0. In fast.json I used a memory
mapped file. On some OSs you can read past the end of such
mappings safely to generate extra \0 bytes. 16 zero-bytes is a
good amount if you want to use the SSE4.2 string instruction.
