An example of reading POST data in node.js


This example shows how to read POST data from both a form submission, and a REST client. The code example uses a manager method. This helps abstract the extra work of using res.on('data') and res.on('end'). It also provides a single location for maintaing the code that reads POST data, allowing you to enhance it, such as with checks for flooding attacks, etc.
