// returns true

Notes

Examples

var Int8Array = require( '@stdlib/array/int8' );
var Buffer = require( '@stdlib/buffer/ctor' );
var isBuffer = require( '@stdlib/assert/is-buffer' );

var bool = isBuffer( new Buffer( [ 1, 2, 3, 4 ] ) );
// returns true

bool = isBuffer( new Buffer( 'beep' ) );
// returns true

bool = isBuffer( [] );
// returns false

bool = isBuffer( {} );
// returns false

bool = isBuffer( new Int8Array() );
// returns false

bool = isBuffer( function foo() {} );
// returns false

bool = isBuffer( null );
// returns false

bool = isBuffer( void 0 );
// returns false
