A ref "type" implementation of
wchar_t * (a.k.a. wide string) backed by "node-iconv"
This module offers a "wide
implementation on top of Node.js Buffers using the ref "type" interface.
$ npm install ref-wchar
Say you have a C library that exports a
wchar_t char and a
wchar_t * wide
EXPORT whcar_t w = L'W';EXPORT wchar_t s = L"hello world";EXPORT wchar_t **str = (wchar_t **)(&s);
var ref = require'ref';var dlfcn = require'dlfcn';var wchar_t = require'ref-wchar';var wchar_string = wchar_tstring;var lib = dlfcn'./libexample';// get the "w" symbol as a wcharvar w = libget'w' wchar_tsize;refgetw wchar_t;// "W"// get the "s" symbol as a wide stringvar s = refreinterpretUntilZeroslibget's' wchar_tsize;wchar_ttoStrings;// "hello world"// get the "str" pointer symbol as a wide stringvar str = libget'str' wchar_stringsize;refgetstr wchar_string;// "hello world"
