On this project, the character mnemonic "NUL" is typically used, not
"null" or "NULL" (which is typically reserved for pointers), so:

The comment is also effectively pure noise since it merely repeats
what the code already states clearly (especially when the code says
"buffer[size] = '\0';"), so dropping the comment altogether would be
