    1. Usage

     
    var Forker = require('evented-forker').Forker;
     
    /*
        Instantiate a new Forker with:
        0: Path to the script you want to execute
        1: Timeout after a exit, close etc (ms)
        2: Setting of { silent: true } in the fork. See http://nodejs.org/api/child_process.html#child_process_child_process_fork_modulepath_args_options.
    */
    var forker = new Forker(__dirname + '/sub.js', 1000, false);
     
    forker.on('message', function(payload) {
        // Do something with the payload
        console.log('Message:', payload);
    });
     
    forker.on('exit', function() {
        // Forked script exited and restarted after timeout
    });
     
    forker.on('error', function() {
        // Forked script error'd and restarted after timeout
    });
     
    forker.on('disconnect', function() {
        // Forked script disconnected and restarted after timeout
    });
     
    forker.on('close', function() {
        // Forked script closed and restarted after timeout
    });
     
    1. Alternative syntax

    Forker can also be instantiated using this alternative syntax:

     
    var forker = require('evented-forker').create(__dirname + '/sub.js', 1000, false);
