   $source as binary(),
   $starting-location as Number,
   [$length as Number]
) as binary()


Returns a binary node made up of a subset of the given binary node.

$source A binary node whose subset will be returned
$starting-location The new binary node starts at the byte position indicated by starting-location. The first byte is at location 1.
$length The length in bytes of the new binary node.

Usage Notes

Usage is exactly like fn:substring except that it applies to a binary node rather than a string.


var node = new NodeBuilder();
var bin = node.addBinary( "DEADBEEF" ).toNode();
xdmp.describe(fn.data(xdmp.subbinary(bin, 3, 2)));
  => xs:hexBinary("BEEF")
