newlines where not honored in stdout and hardcoded appended '\n' was breaking printf("foo");
stdin was just not working when running under nodejs. this way it just works for most cases (non interactive)

Why is this reading up to 1024 bytes?

radare Mar 8, 2012

As far as I understand, this function should just read a single char, but reading only one it's not working, reading 1024 is just a quick hack to make emscripten stdio work with node on commandline. I will investigate if there's a better solution for this, but at least reading 1024 works as expected in most interactive prompt use cases (input is bigger it just fails). Do you know a better way to do this?

I don't know node very well, sorry. But I think it is reading up to 1024 chars from looking at their docs. So I suspect this might not work if the input is bigger than that.

Moving this line up here will append null to the string, when null is passed, which sounds wrong. Why did you need to move it here? Perhaps there is a better fix.

radare Mar 8, 2012

fixed in head.
