Takes a range of ubytes and converts the first T.sizeof bytes to T. The value returned is converted from the given endianness to the native endianness. The T.sizeof bytes which are read are consumed from the range.

T read(T, Endian endianness = Endian.bigEndian, R) (
  ref R range
if (canSwapEndianness!T && isInputRange!R && is(ElementType!R : const(ubyte)));


T The integral type to convert the first T.sizeof bytes to.
endianness The endianness that the bytes are assumed to be in.
range The range to read from.


import std.range.primitives : empty;
ubyte[] buffer = [1, 5, 22, 9, 44, 255, 8];
writeln(buffer.length); // 7

writeln(!ushort()); // 261
writeln(buffer.length); // 5

writeln(!uint()); // 369700095
writeln(buffer.length); // 1

writeln(!ubyte()); // 8
