    This package has been deprecated

    Author message:

    use [cross-spawn](https://github.com/IndigoUnited/node-cross-spawn) or [cross-spawn-async](https://github.com/IndigoUnited/node-cross-spawn-async) instead.

    win-spawn

    Spawn for node.js but in a way that works regardless of which OS you're using. Use this if you want to use spawn with a JavaScript file. It works by explicitly invoking node on windows. It also shims support for environment variable setting by attempting to parse the command with a regex. Since all modification is wrapped in if (os === 'Windows_NT') it can be safely used on non-windows systems and will not break anything.

    Installation

    $ npm install win-spawn

    Usage

    Command Line

    All the following will work exactly as if the 'win-spawn ' prefix was ommitted when on unix.

    $ win-spawn foo
    $ win-spawn ./bin/foo
    $ win-spawn NODE_PATH=./lib foo
    $ win-spawn NODE_PATH=./lib foo arg1 arg2
    

    You can also transform all the line endings in a directory from \r\n to \n just by running:

    $ win-line-endings
    

    You can preview the changes by running:

    $ win-line-endings -p
    

    It will ignore node_modules and .git by default, but is not clever enough to recognise binary files yet.

    API

    This will just pass through to child_process.spawn on unix systems, but will correctly parse the arguments on windows.

    spawn('foo', [], {stdio: 'inherit'});
    spawn('./bin/foo', [], {stdio: 'inherit'});
    spawn('NODE_PATH=./lib foo', [], {stdio: 'inherit'});
    spawn('NODE_PATH=./lib foo', [arg1, arg2], {stdio: 'inherit'});
