    async-emit

    Emits an event on an EventEmitter where the listener may include a callback function

    An asyncEmit() function that accepts an EventEmitter, an Array of args, and a callback function. If the emitter listener function has an arity > args.length then there is an assumed callback function on the emitter, which means that it is doing some async work. We have to wait for the callbacks for any async listener functions.

    It works like this:

    var emitter = new EventEmitter()
     
    // this is an async listener
    emitter.on('something', function (val, done) {
      // val may be any number of input arguments
      setTimeout(function () {
        done()
      }, 1000)
    })
     
    // this is a sync listener, no callback function
    emitter.on('something', function (val) {
     
    })
     
    asyncEmit(emitter, 'something', [ 5 ], function (err) {
      if (err) throw err
      console.log('DONE!')
    })
