Too Long; Didn't Read

So, there was a project I was working on where I had to fetch the data from serial monitor in my node console and then using web sockets display the data in a web based application. But, I was having a hard time figuring out how to fetch the data, I explored and found <a href="https://www.npmjs.com/package/serialport" target="_blank">serialport</a> npm module, but the output it gave was in form of buffer, not the exact word I wanted.&nbsp;<br>After spending some time, I was able to figure out how to do it. Hence, I am sharing this so that it can help anyone who is trying to do the same.
