    node_stream_handler

    Unlike HTTP, services such as SMTP and POP have multiple exchanges between the client and the server before disconnecting. node_stream_handler simplifies exchanges like that by emitting a line event every time a specified delimiter is sent by the remote server.

    Install

    npm install node_stream_handler

    Example

    This is a simple POP3 login and listing.

    var   sys           = require('sys')
        , StreamHandler = require('stream-handler')
    ;
     
    var stream = new StreamHandler('example.com', 110);
    stream.on('line', function(line) {
        console.log('Received Line: ' + line);
    });
    stream.on('error', function (err, excp) {
    	console.log(excp);
    });
    
    //Catch the welcome message
    stream.once('line', function(line) {
    	console.log('Got Welcome: ' + line);
    	//Catch the OK from the USER command
    	stream.once('line', function(line) {
    		if (line == '+OK') {
    			//Catche the OK from the PASS command
    			stream.once('line', function(line) {
    				console.log('Requesting LIST');
    				stream.write('LIST' + "\r\n");
    			});
    			console.log('Sending Password');
    			stream.write('PASS MyPassword' + "\r\n");
    		}
    	});
    	console.log('Logging In');
    	stream.write('USER info@example.com' + "\r\n");
    });
