Slice streams with ease. This was originally created for use with split but should work with any stream buffer delimiter.
var sslice = require('sslice') , split = require('split') , fs = require('fs'); // pipe all but the first and last line of a file to stdout fs.createReadStream(somefile) .pipe(split()) .pipe(sslice(1, -1)) .pipe(process.stdout)
With npm do:
npm install sslice
