Nonlinear Performance Magnification

    lines

    this is a tiny utility function to help processing readable streams line per line with NodeJS

    here is a simple example which explains almost everything

    var lines = require('lines');
    var net = require('net');
    
    net.createServer(function(socket) {
        socket.setEncoding('utf8');
        lines(socket); // here is where the magic happens
        socket.on('line', function(line) {
    	// line is one line with no trailing \n or \r
        });
    }).listen('/tmp/mysock');
    

    lines doesn't work on non-encoded streams. note that you still can listen to 'data' events on the same stream with no loss of data.

    install it via npm npm install lines

    or get the code from the repository and link lines.js from your ~/.node_libraries/
