This is a node.js module, written in C++, that compares two buffers.
For now it implements just eqBuf to test if two buffers are equal, fast.

It was written by Peteris Krumins (
His blog is at  --  good coders code, great reuse.


The module exports one function:

    * eqBuf - given two buffers, compare if they are equal.

Example usage:

    var eqBuf = require('bufferdiff');
    // ...
    if (eqBuf(buf1, buf2)) {
        sys.log('buffers buf1 and buf2 are equal');

How to compile?

As usual,

    node-waf configure build

The module will be called `bufferdiff.node`. To use it, make sure it's in NODE_PATH.

Extra info

This library was written for my and SubStack's StackVM startup:


Yo dawg, I heard you liked buffers so I put a buffer in yo buffer so you can
compare while you compare.
