Recreate stream in case of error

To get started, install stream-recreate package via npm::

% npm install stream-recreate

The basic usage example is as follows::

var recreate = require('stream-recreate'),
    websocket = require('websocket-stream');

var socket = recreate(function() {
  return websocket('ws://localhost:3000');
});

socket.write('data');

Returned socket stream will recreate underlying websocket stream if end or error event is occurred. It uses backoff module to control the interval between attempts to recreate a stream.

To shutdown cleanly call socket.end().

Note that we can call socket.write() right after the creation even if underlying websocket() stream isn't open yet — stream-recreate returns another stream which buffers writes and drains buffers on open of an underlying stream.
