Node.js Buffer.byteOffset Property

  • Last Updated : 09 Aug, 2020

The Buffer.byteOffset property is an inbuilt application programming interface of class Buffer within buffer module which is used to get the byte offset value of this buffer.

Syntax:

const Buffer.byteOffset

Return Value: This property return the object of array buffer.

Example 1: Filename: index.js

Javascript






// Node.js program to demonstrate the
// Buffer.byteOffset property
  
// Creating and initializing arraybuffer object
const arrbuff = new ArrayBuffer(16);
  
// Getting buffer object form existing 
// arraybuffer object
const buffer = Buffer.from(arrbuff);
  
// Getting byteoffset of buffer
// by using byoffset property
const bytoff = buffer.byteOffset;
  
// Display the result
console.log("byteoffset is : " + bytoff);

Output:

byteoffset is : 0

Example 2: Filename: index.js

Javascript




// Node.js program to demonstrate the
// Buffer.byteOffset property
  
// Creating and initializing arraybuffer object
const arrbuff = new ArrayBuffer(16);
  
// Getting buffer object form existing 
// arraybuffer object
const buffer = Buffer.from(arrbuff);
  
// Getting byteoffset of buffer
// by using byoffset api
const bytoff = buffer.byteOffset;
  
const buff = new Int8Array(buffer, bytoff, buffer.length);
  
// Display the result
console.log("Int8Arry object : " + buff);

Output:

Int8Arry object : 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0

Run the index.js file using the following command:

node index.js
