    Add-on Arguments

    NPM version Build Status Coverage Status dependencies

    C API for validating, extracting, and transforming (to native C types) function arguments provided to a strided array Node-API add-on interface.

    Installation

    npm install @stdlib/strided-napi-addon-arguments

    Usage

    var headerDir = require( '@stdlib/strided-napi-addon-arguments' );

    headerDir

    Absolute file path for the directory containing header files for C APIs.

    var dir = headerDir;
    // returns <string>

    Examples

    var headerDir = require( '@stdlib/strided-napi-addon-arguments' );
    
    console.log( headerDir );
    // => <string>

    C APIs

    Installation

    npm install @stdlib/strided-napi-addon-arguments

    Usage

    #include "stdlib/strided/napi/addon_arguments.h"

    stdlib_strided_napi_addon_arguments( env, argv, nargs, nin, *arrays[], *shape, *strides, *types, *err )

    Validates, extracts, and transforms (to native C types) function arguments provided to a strided array Node-API add-on interface.

    #include <node_api.h>
    #include <stdint.h>
    #include <assert.h>

    napi_value addon( napi_env env, napi_callback_info info ) {
        napi_status status;
    
        // ...
    
        int64_t nargs = 7;
        int64_t nin = 2;
    
        // Get callback arguments:
        size_t argc = 7;
        napi_value argv[ 7 ];
        status = napi_get_cb_info( env, info, &argc, argv, NULL, NULL );
        assert( status == napi_ok );
    
        // ...
    
        // Initialize destination arrays:
        uint8_t *arrays[ 3 ];
        int64_t strides[ 3 ];
        int64_t shape[ 1 ];
        int32_t types[ 3 ];
    
        // Process the provided arguments:
        napi_value err;
        status = stdlib_strided_napi_addon_arguments( env, argv, nargs, nin, arrays, shape, strides, types, &err );
        assert( status == napi_ok );
    
        // ...
    
    }
    
    // ...

    The function accepts the following arguments:

    • env: [in] napi_env environment under which the function is invoked.
    • argv: [in] napi_value* strided function arguments.
    • nargs: [in] int64_t total number of expected arguments.
    • nin: [in] int64_t number of input strided array arguments.
    • arrays: [out] uint8_t** destination array for storing pointers to both input and output strided byte arrays.
    • shape: [out] int64_t* destination array for storing the array shape (dimensions).
    • strides: [out] int64_t* destination array for storing array strides (in bytes) for each strided array.
    • types: [out] int32_t* destination array for storing strided array argument data types.
    • err: [out] napi_value* pointer for storing a JavaScript error.
    napi_status stdlib_strided_napi_addon_arguments( const napi_env env, const napi_value *argv, const int64_t nargs, const int64_t nin, uint8_t *arrays[], int64_t *shape, int64_t *strides, int32_t *types, napi_value *err );

    The function returns a napi_status status code indicating success or failure (returns napi_ok if success).

    Notes

    • The function assumes the following argument order:

      [ N, ia1, is1, ia2, is2, ..., oa1, os1, oa2, os2, ... ]
      

      where

      • N is the number of elements over which to iterate.
      • ia# is an input strided array.
      • is# is a corresponding input strided array stride (in units of elements).
      • oa# is an output strided array.
      • os# is a corresponding output strided array stride (in units of elements).
    • The function may return one of the following JavaScript errors:

      • TypeError: first argument must be an integer.
      • TypeError: input array stride argument must be an integer.
      • TypeError: output array stride argument must be an integer.
      • TypeError: input array argument must be a typed array.
      • TypeError: output array argument must be a typed array.
      • RangeError: input array argument must have sufficient elements based on the associated stride and the number of indexed elements.
      • RangeError: output array argument must have sufficient elements based on the associated stride and the number of indexed elements.

    Notice

    This package is part of stdlib, a standard library for JavaScript and Node.js, with an emphasis on numerical and scientific computing. The library provides a collection of robust, high performance libraries for mathematics, statistics, streams, utilities, and more.
