net.conv #


net.conv provides a convenient way to convert number values to, and from the network byte order format (which is always big endian).

When communicating across a network, it is possible that the machines use different byte orders, since the host format of each system can vary, depending on the CPU, and on most systems, is usually little endian.

To avoid mismatches due to that, the network byte order is used by convention to send network data in a manner that will be received coherently, regardless of the endianness of the sender system and the receiver system.

fn ntoh16 #

fn ntoh16(net u16) u16

ntoh16 converts the 16 bit value net to the host format (ntohs)

fn ntoh32 #

fn ntoh32(net u32) u32

ntoh32 converts the 32 bit value net to the host format (ntohl)

fn u64tovarint #

fn u64tovarint(n u64) ![]u8

u64tovarint converts the given 64 bit number n, where n < 2^62 to a byte array, using the variable length unsigned integer encoding from: . The returned array length .len, will be in [1,2,4,8] .

fn varinttou64 #

fn varinttou64(b []u8) !(u64, u8)

varinttou64 parses a variable length number from the start of the given byte array b. If it succeeds, it returns the decoded number, and the length of the parsed byte span.
