Missing "remove" operation on Data in Swift 3 | An Extension for the Data type in Swift 3

It could be me, but is anyone missing the "remove" operation on the "Data" type in Swift 3?

Well, there is an extension for that:

extension Data {

    mutating func removeSubrange(_ range: Range<Int>) {
        var dummy: UInt8 = 0
        let empty = UnsafeBufferPointer<UInt8>(start: &dummy, count: 0)
        self.replaceSubrange(range, with: empty)

Example usage:

var buffer = Data(bytes: [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9])
let range = Range(uncheckedBounds: (lower: 1, upper: 5))

Output: <00050607 0809>

Happy coding...
