example
This is easy to understand with lines:
var split = require('split');
var through = require('through');
var tuple = require('../');

var a = split(), b = split();

tuple(a, b).pipe(through(function (pair) {
    this.queue(pair[0] + ' | ' + pair[1] + '\n');
})).pipe(process.stdout);

a.end('one\ntwo\nhree\n4\nfive');
b.end('one\ntwo\nthree\nfour\n');

output:
one | one
two | two
hree | three
4 | four
five | 

Here the split module chunks up its input by newlines, sending a separate chunk for each line. The tuple module kicks in and aligns the events by order such that the first event from a is paired with the first event from b and so on.
methods

Return a readable stream that zips together the data from readable streams a and b into an array data chunk with [achunk,bchunk].
