  Description     : safely create multiple ReadStreams or WriteStreams from the same fd - Node.js module

 This module provides an API for creating multiple ReadStreams or WriteStreams
 from the same file descriptor.
 The official Node.js API docs say that it is unsafe to use fs.write multiple
 times on the same file without waiting for the callback. This module solves
 this problem.
 fd-slicer also provides additional features that builtin fs.createWriteStream
 is lacking, such as progress events and setting a maximum size to write.
 Node.js is an event-based server-side _javascript_ engine.
 An older version of this module is bundled with node-yauzl. However now
 fd-slicer has a few more features and the new upstream version of
 node-multiparty depends on it.
 I plan to maintain this as part of the pkg-_javascript_ team.
