var child = exec('cat *.js bad_file | wc -l',
  function (error, stdout, stderr) {
    console.log('stdout: ' + stdout);
    console.log('stderr: ' + stderr);
    if (error !== null) {
      console.log('exec error: ' + error);
    }
});

Snippets[edit | edit source]

info = require('../package.json')
info.version

process.stdout.write(util.inspect(objekt, false, Infinity, true) + '\n');

Spawn - passthru the in/out[edit | edit source]

var spawn = require('child_process').spawn;
var proc = spawn(bin, argv, { stdio: 'inherit' });
proc.on('error', function(err) {
  if (err.code == "ENOENT") { "does not exist" }
  if (err.code == "EACCES") { "not executable" }
});
proc.on('exit', function(code) { ... });

// also { stdio: ['pipe', 'pipe', process.stdout] }
// also { stdio: [process.stdin, process.stderr, process.stdout] }

proc.stdout.on('data', function (data) {
});
proc.stderr.on('data', function (data) {
});
