IEEE 754 32-bit and 64-bit floating point JavaScript binary conversion

Read and write 32-bit and 64-bit floating-point numbers to either Arrays or nodejs Buffers.

var fp = require('ieee-float');
var output = [];

fp.writeFloatLE(output, 1.5);
// => output = [0, 0, 192, 63]

var val = fp.readFloatBE(output.reverse());
// => 1.5

Api

writeFloatLE( buf, val, [offset] )

Store a little-endian 32-bit float into the buffer or array buf starting at offset (default 0). No bounds checking is done, will write past the end of the buffer.

writeFloatBE( buf, val, [offset] )

Store a big-endian 32-bit float into the buffer or array buf starting at offset. No bounds checking is done, will write past the end of the buffer.

readFloatLE( buf, [offset] )

Extract a little-endian 32-bit float from the buffer or array buf starting at offset. No bounds checking is done, will read past the end of the array and return 0.

readFloatBE( buf, [offset] )

Extract a big-endian 32-bit float from the buffer or array buf starting at offset. No bounds checking is done, will read past the end of the buffer and return 0.

writeDoubleLE( buf, val, [offset] )

Store a little-endian 64-bit double into buf starting at offset (default offset 0).

writeDoubleBE( buf, val, [offset] )

Store a big-endian 64-bit double into buf starting at offset (default offset 0).

readDoubleLE( buf, [offset] )

Extract a little-endian 64-bit double from the bytes in buf starting at offset.

readDoubleBE( buf, [offset] )

Extract a big-endian 64-bit double from the bytes in buf starting at offset.

  • perhaps should return NaN (or throw) if reading from outside the array bounds
