Get the Node bootstrap script source.
Node exposes a lot of internal modules, but the main bootstrap script
node.js) simply isn't one of them. For most uses, that's probably not an issue, but my uses aren't most people's uses, and so this module was born.
This module utilizes the
Debug object through the
vm module, and finds the bootstrap script in the loaded scripts.
Just require the
module, and call the returned function to get the node bootstrap scripts source as a string.
var getBootstrapNode = require('bootstrap-node'); var bootstrapNode = getBootstrapNode(); console.log(bootstrapNode);
The module caches the script on first call so there is no need to worry about performance issues from calling it multiple times.
Note: If for any reason it should fail to find it, an
Error will be thrown.
Should work in any remotely recent versions of Node. If the Debug API is available back that far, it should match the script all the way back to Node 0.1.27.
