  1. Great article. Thanks. I’m by no means an expert, but re: your comment “It is pretty straightforward to understand why stdin and stdout exist. However, stderr seems pretty odd.” and very much in keeping with your explanation, stdout and stderr are separate channels and may, for example, be separately redirected to two different files. So stderr is sometimes very useful for that purpose, etc.

  2. I came across this while searching about an error that occured while running my react projects. The error occurs while running build command on our project using git bash. Following is the error: > @mo/[email protected] prepare
    > npm run build:dist

    npm ERR! Cannot read properties of undefined (reading ‘stdin’)

    npm ERR! A complete log of this run can be found in: C:\Users\Firmusoft\AppData\

    Does anyone have an idea about this?. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Node and npm and have also removed package-lock.json and cleared npm cache, but still the error persists.
    My Node version is 20.2.0 and npm version is 9.6.6 .
