Use the twos-complement-buffer.js file in the /dist folder: ```html ``` Or load it from the jsDelivr CDN: ```html ``` Or load it from unpkg: ```html ```


```javascript const TwosComplementBuffer = require('twos-complement-buffer'); // A byte buffer, array and Uint8Array can be used let buffer = ; // Create a TwosComplementBuffer to handle 32-bit numbers let tcbParser = new TwosComplementBuffer(32); // Pack a value tcbParser.pack(buffer, -2045); // Check the buffer console.log(buffer); ```


```javascript / A class to write and read two's complement signed integers to and from byte buffers. / class TwosComplementBuffer { /
* @param {number} bits The number of bits used by the integer.
constructor(bits) {
* The number of bits used by one number.
* @type {number}
* The number of bytes used by one number.
* @type {number}
} /
* Write one two's complement signed integer to a byte buffer.
* @param {!Uint8Array|!Array<number>} buffer An array of bytes.
* @param {number} num The number.
* @param {number=} index The index being written in the byte buffer.
* @return {number} The next index to write on the byte buffer.
* @throws {TypeError} If num is NaN.
* @throws {RangeError} On overflow.
