    Next Data Type

    NPM version Build Status Coverage Status dependencies

    Return the next larger ndarray data type of the same kind.

    Installation

    npm install @stdlib/ndarray-next-dtype

    Usage

    var nextDataType = require( '@stdlib/ndarray-next-dtype' );

    nextDataType( [dtype] )

    If provided a dtype argument, returns the next larger ndarray data type of the same kind.

    var out = nextDataType( 'float32' );
    // returns 'float64'

    If a data type does not have a next larger data type or the next larger data type is not supported, the function returns -1.

    var out = nextDataType( 'float64' );
    // returns -1

    If not provided a dtype argument, the function returns a table.

    var out = nextDataType();
    // returns {...}

    If provided an unrecognized or unsupported dtype, the function returns null.

    var out = nextDataType( 'foo' );
    // returns null

    Examples

    var dtypes = require( '@stdlib/ndarray-dtypes' );
    var nextDataType = require( '@stdlib/ndarray-next-dtype' );
    
    var DTYPES;
    var dt;
    var i;
    
    // Get the list of supported ndarray data types:
    DTYPES = dtypes();
    
    // Print the next larger data type for each supported data type...
    for ( i = 0; i < DTYPES.length; i++ ) {
        dt = nextDataType( DTYPES[ i ] );
        console.log( '%s => %s', DTYPES[ i ], dt );
    }
