Function std.digest.ripemd.RIPEMD160.start

Used to (re)initialize the RIPEMD160 digest.

void start() pure nothrow @nogc @safe;


For this RIPEMD160 Digest implementation calling start after default construction is not necessary. Calling start is only necessary to reset the Digest.

Generic code which deals with different Digest types should always call start though.


RIPEMD160 digest;
//digest.start(); //Not necessary
