#### Windows note
#### Windows command prompt notes

##### CMD

On Windows the environment variable is set using the `set` command.

```cmd
set DEBUG=*,-not_this
```

Note that PowerShell uses different syntax to set environment variables.
Example:

```cmd
set DEBUG=* & node app.js
```

##### PowerShell (VS Code default)

PowerShell uses different syntax to set environment variables.

```cmd
$env:DEBUG = "*,-not_this"
```

Example:

```cmd
$env:DEBUG='app';node app.js
```

Then, run the program to be debugged as usual.

npm script example:
```js
"windowsDebug": "@powershell -Command $env:DEBUG='*';node app.js",
```
