.SH DESCRIPTION

Node is a set of libraries for javascript which allows
it to be used outside of the browser. It is primarily
focused on creating simple, easy to build network clients
and servers.


.SH OPTIONS

  -v, --version          print node's version

  -e, --eval script      evaluate script

  -p, --print            print result of --eval

  -i, --interactive      always enter the REPL even if stdin
                         does not appear to be a terminal

  --no-deprecation       silence deprecation warnings

  --trace-deprecation    show stack traces on deprecations

  --throw-deprecation    throw errors on deprecations

  --v8-options           print v8 command line options
