Generator style file splitter.

Install like so:

npm install fsplit

Works like so:

var fsplit = require('fsplit');
var file = fsplit('./path/to/file', '\n');
var chunk;
// Grab all chunks. 
while ((chunk = !== null) {
  // Work with the chunk. 

Uses a little trick to look like a generator, but doesn't experience the performance impact that generators have. Also has a little black magic using core internals to make it supa fast.

Notes: Right now it only supports loading the entire file in immediately and only supports single character splits. Though if others actually start to use this I might add support.
