Node.js Buffer.readUInt32LE Lab
In this lab, you will learn how to use
Buffer.readUInt32LE(offset) method in Node.js. The
Buffer.readUInt32LE(offset) method reads an unsigned, 32-bit integer from a buffer at the specified offset, in little-endian format.
The syntax for
Buffer.readUInt32LE(offset) method is as follows:
offset refers to the starting byte-index for reading the 32-bit integer from the buffer, and
noAssert is an optional parameter. If
noAssert is set to true, it will allow reading outside of the buffer's bounds without throwing an error.
In this lab, you will create a utility function
parseBuffer that takes a buffer and an offset as input, and parses the unsigned, 32-bit integer from the buffer using the
You are required to export the
parseBuffer function and run several tests based on the challenges mentioned below.
