Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import nodertWin81WindowsGlobalizationCollation from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/@nodert-win8.1/windows.globalization.collation';



A Node.js wrapper for the Windows.Globalization.Collation WinRT namespace, compatible with Windows 8.1 APIs.

Using this module, you'll be able to consume the Windows.Globalization.Collation API directly from Node.js.

This module was automatically generated by NodeRT. For more information on NodeRT and examples on how to use NodeRT modules, please visit the project page at: https://github.com/NodeRT/NodeRT.

The API exposed by this module is (almost) the same as the API that is listed in: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/Windows.Globalization.Collation.aspx

The only difference in the API is in the way that asynchronous methods and events are used. (See https://github.com/NodeRT/NodeRT#ConsumingNodeRT for more details)

This module also contains TypeScript definition files for the API exposed by the module, as well as JavaScript intellisense support for Node.js tools for Visual Studio.
