Build Status

This module create a Stream which implement both the writer and reader API. The content written to the stream is buffered at a defined size and later flushed into the final destination stream. Use the buffered stream to increase writing speed.

Quick example

The example below will buffer the data from i readable stream and send them to a writeable stream as 16 Mo chunks.

buffered = require('buffered-stream');
reader = createStreamReader();
buffer = buffered(4*1024*1024);
writer = createStreamWriter();


Tests are executed with mocha. To install it, simple run npm install, it will install mocha and its dependencies in your project "node_modules" directory.

To run the tests:

npm test

The tests run against the CoffeeScript source files.

To generate the JavaScript files:

make build

The test suite is run online with Travis against Node.js version 0.6, 0.7, 0.8 and 0.9.
