Code to demonstrate the EPIPE exception:

I have no idea why this EPIPE error is getting raised, or how to fix it.

I'm spawning a child process using spawn child.js which just listens on stdin and when stdin is closed, it will write to stdout to pass information back to the parent process.

The parent process (in cli.js) spawns the child.js script using spawn, and then logs the exit code on the child process.

Steps to reproduce:

Using node 0.6.x, just do:

  • npm install
  • node cli.js
