       buffer_get - read binary data from buffer


       #include <buffer.h>

       ssize_t buffer_get(buffer* b,char* x,size_t len);


       Normally  buffer_get  copies  data  to  x[0],  x[1], ..., x[len-1] from the beginning of a
       string stored in preallocated space; removes these len bytes from the string; and  returns

       If, however, the string has fewer than len (but more than 0) bytes, buffer_get copies only
       that many bytes, and returns that number.

       If the string is empty, buffer_get first uses a read  operation  to  feed  data  into  the
       string.  The read operation may indicate end of input, in which case buffer_get returns 0;
       or a read error, in which case buffer_get returns -1, setting errno appropriately.

       The preallocated space and the read operation are specified by b. You  must  initialize  b
       using buffer_init before calling buffer_get (or use the pre-initialized buffer_0).
