A StreamStack subclass that parses "multipart" data, often from SMTP or HTTP.

This module implements Section 7.2 of RFC 1341. It can be easily used in conjunction with any node ReadableStream.

var http = require('http');
var multipart = require('multipart-stack');

var server = http.createServer(function(req, res) {
  var parsed = multipart.parseContentType(req.headers['content-type']);
  if (parsed.type === 'multipart') {
    var parser = new multipart.Parser(req, parsed.boundary);
    parser.on('part', function(part) {

      part.on('headers', function(headers) {
