    Destroy a stream.

    This module is meant to ensure a stream gets destroyed, handling different APIs and Node.js bugs.

    API

    var destroy = require('destroy')

    destroy(stream)

    Destroy the given stream. In most cases, this is identical to a simple stream.destroy() call. The rules are as follows for a given stream:

    1. If the stream is an instance of ReadStream, then call stream.destroy() and add a listener to the open event to call stream.close() if it is fired. This is for a Node.js bug that will leak a file descriptor if .destroy() is called before open.
    2. If the stream is not an instance of Stream, then nothing happens.
    3. If the stream has a .destroy() method, then call it.

    The function returns the stream passed in as the argument.

    Example

    var destroy = require('destroy')
     
    var fs = require('fs')
    var stream = fs.createReadStream('package.json')
     
    // ... and later
    destroy(stream)

    Install

    npm i destroy
