node.js newbie - running example.js

I've installed node.js.

I created a file named example.js  (as specified on the node.js home page online) and placed it in my root C:\

Then executed the following:

node attempt

1)  LOL ... how do I get rid of the ... that appears no matter what I type?  And what does the ... mean to me?

2)  How do I properly run this command:    % node example.js



Here is the content of C:\example.js:

var http = require('http');
http.createServer(function (req, res) {
  res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
  res.end('Hello World\n');
}).listen(1337, '127.0.0.1');
console.log('Server running at http://127.0.0.1:1337/');

Open in new window



Thanks for helping me out.  : )
