JavaScript | dataView.getFloat64()

The dataView.getFloat64() is an inbuilt function in dataView which is used to get a 64-bit float at the specified location i.e, at byte offset from the start of the dataView. The range of 64-bit floating point number is form -1.7E+308 to +1.7E+308
Syntax:

dataView.getFloat64(byteOffset)

Parameters: It has parameter byteOffset which is offset in byte and it says from the start of the view where to read the data.
Return value: It returns 64-bit signed float number.

    // Creating buffer with size in byte
    var buffer = new ArrayBuffer(20);
  
    // Creating a view
    var dataview1 = new DataView(buffer, 0, 10);
  
    // put the data 56.34 at slot 1
    dataview1.setFloat64(1, 56.34);
    document.write(dataview1.getFloat64(1) + "<br>");
  
</script>

Output:

56.34

Code #2:
Not only float value but also a math function like Math.PI can be taken as the parameter of the function.

    var buffer = new ArrayBuffer(20);
  
    // Creating a view with slot from o to 10
    var dataview1 = new DataView(buffer, 0, 10);
  
    // put the value of PI at slot 1
    dataview1.setFloat64(1, Math.PI);
    document.write(dataview1.getFloat64(1) + "<br>");
  
</script>
