This is a module that contains some backported fixes for the node.js core libraries. It happens to be here just to support my other projects that heavily depend on the targeted core modules.
This module will be maintained as long as any of the previous statements is true:
Either manually clone this repository into your node_modules directory, or the recommended method:
npm install backport-0.4
This version specifically targets:
The provied backported modules are the modules from node.js v0.4.10 with the above fix. The http module doesn't have the DTrace support that the core http module has. The reason is to keep the backporting effort to minim since node doesn't expose the used DTrace functions as globals into the userland code.
The backport-0.4 module contains a simple loader for the provided backported core modules. Basically it resumes to this:
// load the backported http modulevar http = ;// load the backported https modulevar https = ;
The rest of the invocation follows the logic of the core module itself. This module specifically targets node v0.4.9+.
