About stdlib...

We believe in a future in which the web is a preferred environment for numerical computation. To help realize this future, we've built stdlib. stdlib is a standard library, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computation, written in JavaScript (and C) for execution in browsers and in Node.js.

The library is fully decomposable, being architected in such a way that you can swap out and mix and match APIs and functionality to cater to your exact preferences and use cases.

When you use stdlib, you can be absolutely certain that you are using the most thorough, rigorous, well-written, studied, documented, tested, measured, and high-quality code out there.

To join us in bringing numerical computing to the web, get started by checking us out on GitHub, and please consider financially supporting stdlib. We greatly appreciate your continued support!

filledarrayBy

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

Create a filled array according to a provided callback function.

Installation

npm install @stdlib/array-filled-by

Usage

var filledarrayBy = require( '@stdlib/array-filled-by' );

filledarrayBy( [dtype] )

Creates a filled array having a specified data type dtype.

var arr = filledarrayBy();
// returns <Float64Array>

The function recognizes the following data types:

  • float64: double-precision floating-point numbers (IEEE 754)
  • float32: single-precision floating-point numbers (IEEE 754)
  • complex128: double-precision complex floating-point numbers
  • complex64: single-precision complex floating-point numbers
  • int32: 32-bit two's complement signed integers
  • uint32: 32-bit unsigned integers
  • int16: 16-bit two's complement signed integers
  • uint16: 16-bit unsigned integers
  • int8: 8-bit two's complement signed integers
  • uint8: 8-bit unsigned integers
  • uint8c: 8-bit unsigned integers clamped to 0-255
  • generic: generic JavaScript values

By default, the output array data type is float64 (i.e., a typed array). To specify an alternative data type, provide a dtype argument.

var arr = filledarrayBy( 'int32' );
// returns <Int32Array>

filledarrayBy( length[, dtype], clbk[, thisArg] )

Returns a filled array according to a provided callback function and having a specified length.

function constant() {
    return 1.0;
}

var arr1 = filledarrayBy( 5, constant );
// returns <Float64Array>[ 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0 ]

var arr2 = filledarrayBy( 5, 'uint8', constant );
// returns <Uint8Array>[ 1, 1, 1, 1, 1 ]

filledarrayBy( array[, dtype], clbk[, thisArg] )

Creates a filled array from another array (or array-like object) according to a provided callback function.

var arr0 = {
    '0': 0.5,
    '1': 0.5,
    '2': 0.5,
    'length': 3
};

function clbk1() {
    return 1.0;
}
var arr1 = filledarrayBy( arr0, clbk1 );
// returns <Float64Array>[ 1.0, 1.0, 1.0 ]

function clbk2() {
    return 2.0;
}
var arr2 = filledarrayBy( arr1, clbk2 );
// returns <Float64Array>[ 2.0, 2.0, 2.0 ]

function clbk3() {
    return 3.0;
}
var arr3 = filledarrayBy( arr1, 'int32', clbk3 );
// returns <Int32Array>[ 3, 3, 3 ]

filledarrayBy( iterable[, dtype], clbk[, thisArg] )

Creates a filled array from an iterable according to a provided callback function.

var iterConstant = require( '@stdlib/iter-constant' );

function clbk() {
    return 1.0;
}

var it = iterConstant( 3.0, {
    'iter': 3
});

var arr1 = filledarrayBy( it, clbk );
// returns <Float64Array>[ 1.0, 1.0, 1.0 ]

var arr2 = filledarrayBy( it, 'float32', clbk );
// returns <Float32Array>[ 1.0, 1.0, 1.0 ]

filledarrayBy( buffer[, byteOffset[, length]][, dtype], clbk[, thisArg] )

Returns a filled typed array view of an ArrayBuffer according to a provided callback function.

var ArrayBuffer = require( '@stdlib/array-buffer' );

function clbk() {
    return 1.0;
}

var buf = new ArrayBuffer( 32 );
var arr = filledarrayBy( buf, clbk );
// returns <Float64Array>[ 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0 ]

buf = new ArrayBuffer( 32 );
arr = filledarrayBy( buf, 'float32', clbk );
// returns <Float32Array>[ 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0 ]

buf = new ArrayBuffer( 32 );
arr = filledarrayBy( buf, 16, clbk );
// returns <Float64Array>[ 1.0, 1.0 ]

buf = new ArrayBuffer( 32 );
arr = filledarrayBy( buf, 16, 'float32', clbk );
// returns <Float32Array>[ 1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0 ]

buf = new ArrayBuffer( 32 );
arr = filledarrayBy( buf, 16, 1, clbk );
// returns <Float64Array>[ 1.0 ]

buf = new ArrayBuffer( 32 );
arr = filledarrayBy( buf, 10, 4, 'int16', clbk );
// returns <Int16Array>[ 1, 1, 1, 1 ]

Notes

  • Creating a generic array from an ArrayBuffer is not supported.

  • A callback function is provided a single argument:

    • index: the current array index.

Examples

var discreteUniform = require( '@stdlib/random-base-discrete-uniform' ).factory;
var dtypes = require( '@stdlib/array-typed-real-dtypes' );
var filledarrayBy = require( '@stdlib/array-filled-by' );

// Create a pseudorandom number generator:
var rand = discreteUniform( 0, 100 );

// Get a list of array data types:
var dt = dtypes();

// Generate filled arrays...
var arr;
var i;
for ( i = 0; i < dt.length; i++ ) {
    arr = filledarrayBy( 10, dt[ i ], rand );
    console.log( arr );
}
