partoffile

Read part of file.

partoffile

Meh. Read part of file. Mostly because current way of doing it is too cumbersome.

$ npm install partoffile

Function takes 4 parameters :

  • path to file you want to read
  • position from where to start reading
  • position till where to read
  • callback

Callback gets a buffer which can be used however.

var file = require('partoffile');
 
file('test.txt', 0, 10, function(errbuffer) {
    if(err) throw err;
    console.log(buffer.toString('utf8'));
});
