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.
