I've been trying out the node.js tools for Visual Studio (2012 version).
If I run something with listen then the node.exe screen of course stays open and I can see what is written to the console.
However if there isn't any listen code the window closes immediately the code is run and you can't see the output.
It is possible to set a breakpoint which allows the window to stay open but it would be nice to be able to just either redirect the output to another window which doesn't close immediately or keep the node.exe screen open until it is closed.
I've had a search for solutions but they all seem pretty awkward like running a "wait" batch file on the code - is there a simple way to do this?
