Read/write IEEE754 floating point numbers from/to a Buffer or array-like object.
npm install ieee754
var ieee754 = require('ieee754')
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
- isLe = is little endian?
- mLen = mantissa length
- nBytes = number of bytes
