Simple example for calculating gratuity

This example is in the tests folder. It is basic and does not fully test all error conditions, but it is a good way to get the hang of the module.

var pipeline = require('node-pipeline'),
pl = pipeline.create("Tax and Gratuity Calculator");
 
pl.on('end', function(errresults) {
if (err) {
console.log('Error in pipeline: ' + err);
}
 
console.log("Raw results" + JSON.stringify(results, 2) );
process.exit();
});
 
 
pl.use(function(resultsnext) {
var price = Number(results[0].price),
taxrate = Number(results[0].taxrate);
 
next(null, { tax : price * taxrate });
});
 
 
pl.use(function(resultsnext) {
var price = Number(results[0].price),
tax = Number(results[1].tax),
gratuityrate = Number(results[0].gratuityrate);
 
next(null, { gratuity : (price + tax) * gratuityrate }) 
});
 
 
pl.execute({
currency: "USD",
symbol: "$",
price: argv.price || 0,
taxrate: argv.tax || 0.0825,
gratuityrate: argv.gratuity || "0.25"
});
