Usage

A StreamStream is a special kind of transform stream to which you write readable streams. The contents of the readable streams will be concatenated in the order you wrote them.

var ss = require('stream-stream');
var fs = require('fs');

var files = ['a.txt', 'b.txt', 'c.txt'];
var stream = ss();

files.forEach(function(f) {
    stream.write(fs.createReadStream(f));
});
stream.end();

stream.pipe(process.stdout);

You can also add a separator between the contents of each stream by specifying a separator field in the options.

var mystream = new ss({
    separator: '\n',

    // if separator is a function, it will get called
    // everytime the stream needs to insert a separator
    separator: function(cb) {
        cb('\n');
    },
    separator: function(cb) {
        cb(someReadableStream)
    }
});

It is also possible to pipe() to this stream from a readable stream in objectMode.

Test

You can run the tests with npm test. You will need nodeunit
