int64-buffer

64bit Long Integer on Buffer/Array/ArrayBuffer in Pure JavaScript

npm version Build Status

Sauce Test Status

JavaScript's number based on IEEE-754 could only handle 53 bits precision. This module provides two pair of classes: Int64BE/Uint64BE and Int64LE/Uint64LE which could hold 64 bits long integer and loose no bit.

Features

  • Int64BE/Int64LE for signed integer, Uint64BE/Uint64LE for unsigned.
  • Int64BE/Uint64BE for big-endian, Uint64BE/Uint64LE for little-endian.
  • Buffer/Uint8Array/Array/Array-like storage of 8 bytes length with offset.
  • No mathematical methods provided, such as add(), sub(), mul(), div() etc.
  • Optimized only for 64 bits. If you need Int128, use bignum etc.
  • Small. 3KB when minified. No other module required. Portable pure JavaScript.
  • Tested on node.js v0.10, v0.12, v4, v5, v6 and Web browsers.

Usage

Int64BE is the class to host a 64 bit signed long integer int64_t.

var Int64BE = require("int64-buffer").Int64BE;
 
var big = new Int64BE(-1);
 
console.log(big - 0); // -1 
 
console.log(big.toBuffer()); // <Buffer ff ff ff ff ff ff ff ff> 

It uses Buffer on Node.js and Uint8Array on modern Web browsers.

Uint64BE is the class to host a 64 bit unsigned positive long integer uint64_t.

var Uint64BE = require("int64-buffer").Uint64BE;
 
var big = new Uint64BE(Math.pow(2, 63)); // a big number with 64 bits 
 
console.log(big - 0); // 9223372036854776000 = IEEE-754 loses last bits 
 
console.log(big + ""); // "9223372036854775808" = perfectly correct 

Int64LE and Uint64LE works as same as above but with little-endian storage.

Input Constructor
