ndarray-string

Turns a string into an ndarray

Example

var ndstring = require("ndarray-string")

//Simple example:
var x = ndstring("foobar", [2,3])
console.log(ndstring.toString(x))

//Prints out:
//
//  ["foo", "bar"]
//


//Can also do fancier stuff.  For example, here are all rotations of "banana"
var y = ndstring("bananabanana", [6,6], [1,1])
console.log(ndstring.toString(y))

//Prints out:
//
//  [ 'banana', 'ananab', 'nanaba', 'anaban', 'nabana', 'abanan' ]
//

Install

npm install ndstring

API

var ndstring = require("ndarray-string")

ndstring(str[, shape, stride, offset])

Constructs an ndarray view of str. The values of the ndarray are the full unicode code points of str. The resulting ndarray is a view of a 32 bit unsigned int typed array.

  • str is the string which gets turned into an ndarray
  • shape is the shape of the resulting ndarray
  • stride is the stride of the ndarray
  • offset is the offset

Returns An ndarray view of the code points of str

ndstring.toString(arr)

Turns an ndarray view of a string into an array of strings.

  • arr is an ndarray view of a string, for example created using the above method

Returns An array of native arrays of string with the same shape and stride as in the initial example.
