Installation

$ npm install dstructs-cast-arrays

For use in the browser, use browserifybrowserify.

Usage

var cast = require( 'dstructs-cast-arrays' );

cast( x, type )

Casts an input array or array-likearray-like object to a specified array type.
var arr = Int32Array( 10 );

var out = cast( arr, 'float32' );
// returns Float32Array

type may be either a string specifying the desired output array data type or a value from which the desired data type should be inferred.
var x = Int32Array( 10 ),
	y = Float32Array( 25 );

// Cast `x` to be the same data type as `y`:
var out = cast( x, y );
// returns Float32Array

For a list of supported output array data types, see dstructs-array-constructorsdstructs-array-constructors.

Examples

var cast = require( 'dstructs-cast-arrays' ),
	arr,
	x, y, z;

arr = new Int8Array( 10 );
x = cast( arr, 'int16' );
// returns Int16Array

arr = new Array( 100 );
y = cast( arr, 'float64' );
// returns Float64Array

z = cast( x, y );
// returns Float64Array

To run the example code from the top-level application directory,
$ node ./examples/index.js

Tests

Unit

Unit tests use the Mochamocha test framework with Chaichai assertions. To run the tests, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:
$ make test

All new feature development should have corresponding unit tests to validate correct functionality.

Test Coverage

This repository uses Istanbulistanbul as its code coverage tool. To generate a test coverage report, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:
$ make test-cov

Istanbul creates a ./reports/coverage directory. To access an HTML version of the report,
$ make view-cov
