buffer-split

split a buffer by another buffer. think String.split()


var bsplit = require('buffer-split')
, b = new Buffer("this is a buffer i like to split")
, delim = new Buffer('buffer')
, result = bsplit(b,delim)
;

result.length === 2

result[0].toString() === "this is a "

result[1].toString() === " i like to split"

you may include the delimiter in the result by passing a thrthy value as the third arg. its more efficient if you need it.

var bsplit = require('buffer-split')
, b = new Buffer("this is a buffer i like to split")
, delim = new Buffer('buffer')
, result = bsplit(b,delim,true)
;

result[0].toString() === "this is a buffer"

result[1].toString() === " i like to split"
