The Int8Array() constructor creates a typed array of twos-complement 8-bit signed integers. The contents are initialized to 0. Once established, you can reference elements in the array using the object's methods, or using standard array index syntax (that is, using bracket notation).


new Int8Array()
new Int8Array(length)
new Int8Array(typedArray)
new Int8Array(object)

new Int8Array(buffer)
new Int8Array(buffer, byteOffset)
new Int8Array(buffer, byteOffset, length)

Note: Int8Array() can only be constructed with new. Attempting to call it without new throws a TypeError.
