NodeJS Series Part 3: Using External Files

Here I will describe NodeJS which is Part 3 of NodeJS series.We will create external JavaScript files to be called from the NodeJS command prompt.

This time we will create external JavaScript files to be called from the NodeJS command prompt.

Create a new JavaScript file (for instance I've created sample.js).

Add the following JavaScript lines as an example:

  1. console.log("Poooff");  

When we call an external file from the nodejs command prompt, it shall write “Pooff” as output.

Store this file in a close destination that is easy to access later from the command prompt. Now open the “Nodejs Command Prompt” application and call this:

node5

Then press Enter and see what happens. For me, I get:

node6

It's that easy to call external files with Nodejs.

Do you want a much more complicated and useful solution? The next article will be about that.
