$ npm install dstructs-cast-arrays

For use in the browser, use browserify.

Usage

var cast = require( 'dstructs-cast-arrays' );

cast( x, type )

Casts an input array or array-like object to a specified array type.

var arr = Int32Array( 10 );
 
var out = cast( arr, 'float32' );
// returns Float32Array

type may be either a string specifying the desired output array data type or a value from which the desired data type should be inferred.

var x = Int32Array( 10 ),
    y = Float32Array( 25 );
 
// Cast `x` to be the same data type as `y`:
var out = cast( x, y );
// returns Float32Array

For a list of supported output array data types, see dstructs-array-constructors.

Examples

var cast = require( 'dstructs-cast-arrays' ),
    arr,
    x, y, z;
 
arr = new Int8Array( 10 );
= cast( arr, 'int16' );
// returns Int16Array
 
arr = new Array( 100 );
= cast( arr, 'float64' );
// returns Float64Array
 
= cast( x, y );
// returns Float64Array
