    Queue-Buffer

    A flex buffer which behaves as a dynamic queue with a complete but limited Buffer API.

    • Queue-Buffer extends Flex-Buffer.
    • Tested on Node 0.8-0.12, latest iojs on Mac, Linux and Windows.
    • Entities in the queue are kept in order and the only operations on the collection are the addition of entities to the rear terminal position, known as enqueue(write), and removal of entities from the front terminal position, known as dequeue(read).

    Quick Start

    npm install queue-buffer -S
    

    then

    QueueBuffer = require("queue-buffer");
     
    buf = new QueueBuffer(10);
    buf.write([1, 2, 3, 4, 5]);
    buf.writeInt32LE(14);
    buf.read(5);

    API

    QueueBuffer extends Flexbuffer, please see Flex-Buffer for more API info.

    All the native Buffer API is wrapped. However, read* methods can only read data from head, with no offset argument.
