net/read



    cfunction

    (net/read stream nbytes &opt buf timeout)

    Read up to n bytes from a stream, suspending the current fiber until
    the bytes are available. `n` can also be the keyword `:all` to read
    into the buffer until end of stream. If less than n bytes are
    available (and more than 0), will push those bytes and return early.
    Takes an optional timeout in seconds, after which will return nil.
    Returns a buffer with up to n more bytes in it, or raises an error if
    the read failed.
