Constructors

Typed array constructors.

Usage

var ctors = require( '@stdlib/array/typed-ctors' );

ctors( dtype )

Returns a typed array constructor for a specified data type.

var ctor = ctors( 'float64' );
// returns <Function>

The function returns constructors for the following data types:

  • float32: single-precision floating-point numbers.
  • float64: double-precision floating-point numbers.
  • int16: signed 16-bit integers.
  • int32: signed 32-bit integers.
  • int8: signed 8-bit integers.
  • uint16: unsigned 16-bit integers.
  • uint32: unsigned 32-bit integers.
  • uint8: unsigned 8-bit integers.
  • uint8c: unsigned clamped 8-bit integers.

If provided an unknown or unsupported data type, the function returns null.

var ctor = ctors( 'float' );
// returns null

Examples

var dtypes = require( '@stdlib/array/typed-dtypes' );
var ctors = require( '@stdlib/array/typed-ctors' );

var DTYPES = dtypes();
var ctor;
var i;

for ( i = 0; i < DTYPES.length; i++ ) {
    ctor = ctors( DTYPES[ i ] );
    console.log( ctor );
}
