It would be nice if users can create their own custom functions to handle the data event.
I'm executing a command that checks my php files for syntax errors.
I would like to be able parse each output as it comes and check if there are no errors, otherwise exit the process.


    exec: {
        test: {
            cmd: "find ./component -name '*.php' -exec php -l {} ;",

            onOutData: function (data) {

                if (data.match(/Errors parsing|PHP Parse error/g)) {

            onErrData: function (data) {

                if (data.match(/Errors parsing|PHP Parse error/g)) {

Hmm I'd prefer if this wasn't added to grunt-exec. For the use case you propose, I would suggest just modifying your shell command to look for the parse error itself and exit with 1 if it's found.
