Frequently Asked Questions

What does string_decoder do?

String_decoder is an essential Node.js module, also available on npm for userland, providing an API for decoding Buffer objects into strings. This package mirrors the string_decoder implementation from Node-core, bridging the gap between Buffer data and string formatting. It enables users to convert encoded buffer data back into human-readable string format following specific character encoding schemes.

How do you use string_decoder?

To use string_decoder, you must first install it in your project, which can be done through npm by running the command:

npm install --save string_decoder

After this, you can require it in your Node.js application like this:

var StringDecoder = require('string_decoder').StringDecoder;
var decoder = new StringDecoder('utf8');

var buffer = new Buffer('some buffer');
var string = decoder.write(buffer);

This code will create a utf8 decoder. The write(buffer) function is then used to decode the buffer into a string.

Where are the string_decoder docs?

The full documentation for the string_decoder package is hosted on the Node.js website. The specific URL mentioned in the readme suggests that the documentation for the specific version of the Node.js core reflected in the module (v8.9.4 in this case) could be found at https://nodejs.org/dist/v8.9.4/docs/api/. The Node.js API docs provide in-depth information about installing, importing, and using string_decoder – amongst other node-core packages – in your JavaScript applications. They will give you more examples as well as detailed descriptions about the class methods, instance methods, and event handlers available in this package.
