    pull-write-file

    pull-stream version of fs.createWriteStream

    currently really simple and does not yet support all fs.createWriteStream options yet.

    Example

    var Write = require('pull-write-stream')
     
    pull(
      source, //must be buffers (sorry, strings not working yet!)
      Write(pathToFile, {}, function (err) {
        //callback is called once write is complete,
        //and file descriptor is closed
      })
    )
     

    Performance

    For large buffers this is currently as fast as node's streams, but for lots of small buffers it's a little less. Node uses the fs binding's writev to pass many buffers to the kernel simutaniously.

    TODO: benchmarks with graphs comparing node streams and pull streams.
