abstract unix sockets support for net.createConnection

var net = require('net');
require('abstractsocket')(net);
var connection = net.createConnection('\u0000/tmp/dbus-OeixI07RHo');
connection.pipe(process.stdout);
connection.write(Buffer('\0AUTH EXTERNAL 31303030\r\n'));

you can map net.createConnection to any command:

var net = require('net');
var url = require('url');
require('abstractsocket')(net, {
    getSpawnArguments: function(path) {
        if (path.match(/^ssh\+exec:\/\//)) {
           var params = url.parse(path, true);
           var args = [];
           if (params.port)
           {
               args.push('-p');
               args.push(params.port.toString());
           }
           var user = params.auth.split(':')[0];
           args.push(user + '@' + params.hostname);
           args.push(params.query.command);
           console.log(args);
           return ['ssh', args];
        }
        // if not matched, createConnection is called 
    }
});

// list files on remote machine
var lsStream = net.createConnection('ssh+exec://user@domain.com:2222/?command=ls%20-l');
lsStream.pipe(process.stdout);
