Package description

What is which-typed-array?

The `which-typed-array` npm package is designed to identify the type of a given typed array instance. It supports all built-in JavaScript typed array types, including `Int8Array`, `Uint8Array`, `Uint8ClampedArray`, `Int16Array`, `Uint16Array`, `Int32Array`, `Uint32Array`, `Float32Array`, `Float64Array`, and `BigInt64Array`, `BigUint64Array`. This package is useful for applications that need to process or manipulate typed arrays and must determine their specific types to apply the correct operations.

What are which-typed-array's main functionalities?

Identifying Typed Array Type

This feature allows the identification of the type of a typed array. The function `whichTypedArray` is called with a typed array as its argument, and it returns a string representing the type of the typed array.

"use strict";\nconst whichTypedArray = require('which-typed-array');\nconsole.log(whichTypedArray(new Uint8Array())); // 'Uint8Array'\nconsole.log(whichTypedArray(new Float32Array())); // 'Float32Array'"

assert.equal(false, whichTypedArray(function* () {}));
assert.equal(false, whichTypedArray(x => x * x));
assert.equal(false, whichTypedArray([]));

assert.equal('Int8Array', whichTypedArray(new Int8Array()));
assert.equal('Uint8Array', whichTypedArray(new Uint8Array()));
assert.equal('Uint8ClampedArray', whichTypedArray(new Uint8ClampedArray()));
