Yes, should work just fine.

This function does work on platform, so it's good.

You could be sneaky about it, I suppose
+# Generate an output of $1 bytes of all zeroes (NULs, not ASCII zeroes).
+ gen_zero_bytes () {
+ 	if [ $1 -eq -1 ]; then
+ 	        yes | tr 'y' '\0'
+ 	else
+ 	        perl -e 'print "\0" x $ARGV[0]' "$@"
+ }
Or something alone those lines. It's not even slightly elegant, though. It would be better inside perl, so just

+# Generate an output of $1 bytes of all zeroes (NULs, not ASCII zeroes). If $1 is < 0, output forever.
+ gen_zero_bytes () {
+ 	perl -e ' if ($ARGV[0] < 0) { while (-1) { print "\0" } } else { print "\0" x $ARGV[0] }' "$@"
+ }
