Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So I'm working on my first node.js 'Hello World' on a linux machine and I successfully got everything going by running

$ node example.js

I went to the browser and everything worked fine. Going back to the command line, I see the msg "Server running at http://127.0.0.1:8080" as indicated from the example.js. The only thing is that I can't return to regular command line prompt so I can do more work. It's giving me blank lines where I can type whatever I want with no discernible results. I don't know enough about linux commands to get out of whatever mode I'm in.

Thanks!
