Move bytes from the output sequence to the input sequence.

void commit(
    std::size_t n);


The number of bytes to append from the start of the output sequence to the end of the input sequence. The remainder of the output sequence is discarded.

Requires a preceding call prepare(x) where x >= n, and no intervening operations that modify the input or output sequence.


If n is greater than the size of the output sequence, the entire output sequence is moved to the input sequence and no error is issued.
