writeSize method

void writeSize (
  1. WriteBuffer buffer,
  2. int value
)

Writes a non-negative 32-bit integer value to buffer using an expanding 1-5 byte encoding that optimizes for small values.

This method is intended for use by subclasses overriding writeValue.

Implementation

void writeSize(WriteBuffer buffer, int value) {
  assert(0 <= value && value <= 0xffffffff);
  if (value < 254) {
    buffer.putUint8(value);
  } else if (value <= 0xffff) {
    buffer.putUint8(254);
    buffer.putUint16(value);
  } else {
    buffer.putUint8(255);
    buffer.putUint32(value);
  }
}
