JavaScript Int8Array : ArrayBufferView

Int8Array is similar to an Array where each item is an 8 bit (1 byte) signed integer. Int8Arrays cannot change size after creation.

Constructors

new Int8Array(length : Number) : Int8Array

Creates a new Int8Array of the specified length where each item starts out as 0

Example:

Run

Results:

 

new Int8Array(array : Array) : Int8Array

Creates a new Int8Array and copies the items of array into this. The copied items are converted to 8 bit integers before being stored in this.

Example:

Run

Results:

 

new Int8Array(array : Int8Array) : Int8Array

Creates a new Int8Array and copies the items of array into this. array can be any of the typed array types and the copied items will be converted to 8 bit integers before being stored in this.

Example:

Run

Results:

 

new Int8Array(buffer : ArrayBuffer, [byteOffset = 0 : Number, [length : Number]]) : Int8Array

Creates a view on top of the specified buffer starting at byteOffset of length items. Changes to the items in this actual affect the underlying buffer, and vice versa. If length is not specified, this.length will be buffer.length - byteOffset.

Results:

 

includes(item : Number, [startingIndex = 0 : Number]) : Boolean

Returns true if item is an element of this starting the search from startingIndex. If startingIndex is negative, this.length is added to it before starting the search.

Example:

Run

Results:

 

indexOf(item : Number, [startingIndex = 0 : Number]) : Number

Returns the first location of item in this starting the search from start. If startingIndex is negative, this.length is added to it before starting the search. Returns -1 if item is not found. See also lastIndexOf().

Example:

Run

join([separator = ',' : String]) : String

Returns a String created by joining the toString() of each item of this separated by separator.

Example:

Run

lastIndexOf(item : Number, [startingIndex : Number]) : Number

Returns the location of item by searchig backwards through this, starting the search from startingIndex. If startingIndex is not specified, the search starts from the end of the array. If startingIndex is negative, this.length is added to it before starting the search. Returns -1 if item is not found. See also indexOf().

sort([comparisonFunction : Function]) : Int8Array
comparisonFunction(x : Number, y : Number) : Number

Sort the items of this using comparisonFunction to determine the sort order and returns this. The Number returned by comparisonFunction should be 0 if x and y are equal, negative if x is less than y, or positive if x is greater than y. If comparisonFunction is not specified, the items will be sorted in numeric order. Returns this.

Returns a new Int8Array that is a view on top of this containing items this[begin], this[begin + 1], ..., this[end - 1]. The 0th item in the returned array in the same memory location as this[begin]. If end is not specified, this.length is used.

Example:

Run

Results:

 

values() : Iterator<Number>

Returns an iterator of the items in this. The values function is also returned for this[Symbol.iterator] so you can iterate over this directly to get the values. See also entries() and keys().
