Historical Context/Word of Warning

This was created as a shim to address the bug discussed in node #6456. This bug crops up on newer versions of Node.js (0.12+), truncating terminal output.
You should be mindful of the side-effects caused by using set-blocking:
  • if your module sets blocking to true, it will effect other modules
consuming your library. In yargs we only call setBlocking(true) once we already know we are about to call process.exit(code).
  • this patch will not apply to subprocesses spawned with isTTY = true, this is
the default spawn() behavior.
