Module: SourceMap::VLQ

Defined in:
lib/source_map/vlq.rb

Overview

Support for encoding/decoding the variable length quantity format described in the spec at:

docs.google.com/document/d/1U1RGAehQwRypUTovF1KRlpiOFze0b-_2gc6fAH0KY0k/edit

This implementation is heavily based on github.com/mozilla/source-map Copyright 2009-2011, Mozilla Foundation and contributors, BSD

Constant Summary

VLQ_BASE_SHIFT =

A single base 64 digit can contain 6 bits of data. For the base 64 variable length quantities we use in the source map spec, the first bit is the sign, the next four bits are the actual value, and the 6th bit is the continuation bit. The continuation bit tells us whether there are more digits in this value following this digit.
