Usage

The Buffer interface:

type Buffer interface {
	Len() int64
	Cap() int64
	io.ReadWriter
}

nio's Copy method concurrently copies from an io.Reader to a supplied nio.Buffer, then from the nio.Buffer to an io.Writer. This way, blocking writes don't slow the io.Reader.

import (
  "github.com/djherbis/buffer"
  "github.com/djherbis/nio"
)

buf := buffer.New(32*1024) // 32KB In memory Buffer
nio.Copy(w, r, buf) // Reads and Writes concurrently, buffering using buf.

nio's Pipe method is a buffered version of io.Pipe The writer return once its data has been written to the Buffer. The reader returns with data off the Buffer.

import (
  "gopkg.in/djherbis/buffer.v1"
  "gopkg.in/djherbis/nio.v2"
)

buf := buffer.New(32*1024) // 32KB In memory Buffer
r, w := nio.Pipe(buf)

Installation

go get gopkg.in/djherbis/nio.v2

For some pre-built buffers grab:

go get gopkg.in/djherbis/buffer.v1
