chrome-socket

chrome tcp socket interface with streaming powers

use

var Socket = require('chrome-socket');

// create a new tcp socket (not connected or listening yet)
// socket is a stream and an event emitter
var socket = new Socket();

socket.connect(host, port);

// socket has connected
socket.once('connect', function() {
});

socket.on('data', function(chunk) {
    // chunck is an ArrayBuffer of data received from the socket
});

socket.on('error', function(err) {
    // uh oh!
});

API

The API is modeled after node.js sockets. However, it emits and deals with ArrayBuffer objects versus node Buffers and provides no encoding. Encoding is provided by piping the socket to other streams.
