Today, I collaborated with a vendor who executed their program through a cmd window, which logged events and activities in real-time in Windows. However, based on my past experience, accurate logs are only possible if the buffer is flushed on Windows, especially in IE. In this case, the program wrote the output to the cmd shell instead of a file. Therefore, we had to test the program and copy the logs from the window to a text file.

During testing, we encountered an issue where we couldn’t use the program because the vendor had selected text in the cmd window. The vendor claimed that running a program in this way freezes the application until the text is copied from the cmd shell.

I am uncertain if this is specific to node.js on Windows or not, as I have not heard of this before.
