simple file writer

A swiss army file writer. Handles backpressure by buffering. You don't always want to do that.

Data will be written in the order it was fed to the writer.

Extensive tests are included.

Install

npm install simple-file-writer

usage example 1 - strings or buffers

    var SimpleFileWriter = require('simple-file-writer');

    var writer = new SimpleFileWriter('./1.log');

    writer.write('yey!');

    writer.setupFile('./2.log');

    writer.write(new Buffer('yey!'), function() {
        console.log('message written');
    });

usage example 2 - streams

    var SimpleFileWriter = require('simple-file-writer');

    var writer = new SimpleFileWriter('./1.log');

    var http = require('http');

    http.createServer(function(request, response) {
        //pipe to file
        writer.write(request, function () {
            response.end();
        });
    });

    http.listen(8181, function() {
