This module provides a very minimal DataView implementation. Node.js already
comes with a DataView implementation, but it only works with
instances, and not Node's preferred
Buffer type. This is mostly useful when
re-using previously written code which interacts with
rather than Node.js Buffers.
DataView instances simply proxy the invoked instance method to the
equivalent Buffer API call.
Note that the
buffer property of the
DataView instance is the Node.js
instance, and not a converted
ArrayBuffer or something else like that. There's
no copying that happens here, it's just a "view"...
$ npm install buffer-dataview
var DataView = ;var buffer = 4;var view = buffer;// set a "float" in the data viewview;// ensure that the original Buffer was modifiedconsole;// → 1337.1234130859375
