methods

var ieee754 = require('ieee754')

The ieee754 object has the following functions:

ieee754.read = function (buffer, offset, isLE, mLen, nBytes)
ieee754.write = function (buffer, value, offset, isLE, mLen, nBytes)

The arguments mean the following:

  • buffer = the buffer
  • offset = offset into the buffer
  • value = value to set (only for write)
  • isLe = is little endian?
  • mLen = mantissa length
  • nBytes = number of bytes

what is ieee754?

The IEEE Standard for Floating-Point Arithmetic (IEEE 754) is a technical standard for floating-point computation. Read more.
