ref-wchar-napi ==========

A ref "type" implementation of wchar_t * (a.k.a. wide string) backed by "node-iconv"

Build Status Build Status This module offers a "wide strings" (wchar_t *) implementation on top of Node.js Buffers using the ref "type" interface. Supports Node 6, 7, 8, 10, 12. Installation ------------ Install with npm: ``` bash $ npm install ref-wchar-napi ``` Examples -------- Say you have a C library that exports a wchar_t char and a wchar_t * wide string: ``` c
if defined(WIN32) || defined(WIN32)
define EXPORT declspec(dllexport)
define EXPORT
EXPORT whcart w = L'W'; EXPORT wchart s = L"hello world"; EXPORT wchart str = (wchart )(&s); ``` ``` js var ref = require('ref-napi'); var dlfcn = require('dlfcn'); var wchart = require('ref-wchar-napi'); var wcharstring = wchart.string; var lib = dlfcn('./libexample'); // get the "w" symbol as a wchar var w = lib.get('w', wchart.size); ref.get(w, wchart); // "W" // get the "s" symbol as a wide string var s = ref.reinterpretUntilZeros(lib.get('s'), wchart.size); wchart.toString(s); // "hello world" // get the "str" pointer symbol as a wide string var str = lib.get('str', wcharstring.size); ref.get(str, wcharstring); // "hello world" ``` License ------- (The MIT License) Copyright (c) 2014 Nathan Rajlich <> Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of this software and associated documentation files (the 'Software'), to deal in the Software without restriction, including without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions: The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.
