// returns 'float32'
 
var arr = new Float32Array( 10 );
 
dtype = getType( Object.prototype.toString.call( arr ).slice(8,-1) );
// returns 'float32'
 
// Note: not supported in IE
dtype = getType( arr.constructor.name );
// returns 'float32'

The following array constructors are supported:

$ node ./examples/index.js

Tests

Unit

Unit tests use the Mocha test framework with Chai assertions. To run the tests, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:

$ make test

All new feature development should have corresponding unit tests to validate correct functionality.

Test Coverage
