BinaryReadInt16(<binary>, <position>, <endian>)

Description

Reads a int16 from a binary array at the specified position.

Parameters

<binary> The binary array from which will be read.
<position> The position in the binary array to read from.
<endian> Optional endianness of the read. (Default: @EndianNative)

Return Value

Success: Returns the value read from the binary array.
Failure: Returns null if the position is out of bounds or an error occurs during reading.

Remarks

The BinaryReadInt16 function reads a single int16 from the binary array at the specified position. The optional <endian> parameter allows you to specify the endianness of the value read. By default, it uses the machine-specific endianness, which can be accessed using the @EndianNative constant.

my $a = BinNew(16);

BinaryWriteInt16($a, 0, 12);
BinaryWriteInt16($a, 2, 0x20);
BinaryWriteInt16($a, 4, 'a');

say BinaryExpand($a, false);

say BinaryReadInt16($a, 0);
say BinaryReadInt16($a, 2);
say BinaryReadInt16($a, 4);
