A stream you can pull data from.
Tired of getting a firehose worth of data from your streams. This module is here to save the day. PullStream allows you to pull data when you want and as much as you want.
## PullStream ### ps.pull([number], callback)
var PullStream = require'pullstream';var fs = require'fs';var ps = ;var loremIpsumStream = fscreateReadStream'loremIpsum.txt';var outputStream = fscreateWriteStreampathjoin__dirname 'loremIpsum.out';loremIpsumStreampipeps;// pull 5 bytespspull5console.logdatatoString'utf8';//synchronously pull 1000 bytes or howevery many bytes are availablevar bytes = pspullUpTo1000;// pipe the next 100 to a filepspipe100 outputStreamon'end'console.log'all done';;;
Calls a callback when the specified number of bytes are ready. If no number is specified pull will read until the end of the input stream.
var ps = ;pspull5console.logdatatoString'utf8';;
Synchronously returns the specified number of bytes or however many bytes are available from the input stream. If no number is specified pullUpTo will return however many bytes are available from the input stream.
### ps.pipe([number], destStream)
var ps = ;var data = pspullUpTo1000;console.logdatatoString'utf8';
Pipes the specified number of bytes to destStream. If a number is not specified pipe will pipe the remainder of the input stream to destStream. Back-pressure is properly managed.
### ps.drain(number, callback)
var ps = ;var outputStream = fscreateWriteStreampathjoin__dirname 'loremIpsum.out';pspipe100 outon'end'console.log'done with pipe';;
Consume the specified number of bytes and send them to nowhere. Also drains from upstream as necessary if the specified number of bytes is less than the length of the pull stream's internal buffer.
### ps.write(data, [encoding])
var ps = ;psdrain5console.log'5 bytes removed from pull stream';;
Writes data to input side of a pull stream.
var ps = ;pspull5console.logdatatoString'ascii';;pswrite'Hello World' 'ascii';
Manually ends a pull stream.
var ps = ;pspull5console.logdatatoString'utf8';;pswrite'Hello World';psend;
Writes data to the front of the input side of a pull stream.
var ps = ;pspull11console.logdatatoString;;pswrite'World';psprepend'Hello ';psend;
