Remove a UTF8 BOM at the start of the stream.

Usage

var fs = require('fs');
var concat = require('concat-stream');
var removeBOM = require('remove-bom-stream');
 
fs.createReadStream('utf8-file-with-bom.txt')

    // result won't have a BOM 
  }));

API

removeBOM()

Returns a through2 stream that will remove a BOM, given the data is a UTF8 Buffer with a BOM at the beginning. If the data is not UTF8 or does not have a BOM, the data is not changed and this becomes a normal passthrough stream.
