Duplex Child Process Build Status

Spawn a child process as a duplex stream.

var Child_Process = require('duplex-child-process')
 
var toJPEG = Child_Process.spawn('convert', ['-', 'JPEG:-'])
var getFormat = Child_Process.spawn('identify', ['-format', '%m', '-'])
 
fs.createReadStream('img.png')
.pipe(toJPEG)
.pipe(getFormat)
.once('readable', function () {
  var format = this.read().toString('utf8')
  assert.equal(format, 'JPEG')
})

API

Child_Process.spawn(command, [args], [options])

Convenience wrapper for:

new Child_Process().spawn(command, [args], [options])

new Child_Process(options)

Creates a new duplex child process instance. Does not spawn a new child process yet. This is separated from .spawn() because you may want to use this in your own constructor.

proc.spawn(command, [args], [options])

This actually spawns the child process. In your own app, execute this once you've gotten all your arguments.
