buffer/typed array agnostic buffer operations.
Buffer is implemented in node it is impossible to take code written against the
Buffer API and make it work on top of binary data structures (Array Buffers and Typed Arrays) in the browser.
instead you have to fake the API on top of
Object isn't designed for holding raw binary data and will be really slow/memory inefficient for many common binary use cases (parsing files, writing files, etc).
bops in place of
Uint8Array to make your binary JS code fast + portable.
var binary =binary // === 10
