Hello everyone!
Welcome to my 38th translation report for the Node.js project!
Today I finished the file even if going forward it became a rather complex technical file in fact it took me longer than expected.
Keep reading to check out more about this new translation report!

Project Details

Node.js is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine. It uses a non-blocking event-driven I/O model, which makes it a lightweight and efficient framework. I believe in open source projects and I think it's essential to work on this great project because the package ecosystem of Node.js, called npm, is the largest ecosystem of open source libraries in the world.
Given its importance, its translation into many languages is almost due.
I'll use my skills to make an high quality translation and maybe to learn something more about Node.js world.

Translation Overview

This is my 38th translation for the Node.js project.
Today I finished the translation of the file and it was quite difficult and challenging this time.
More technical words and sentences, a lot of time used for research and for the most appropriate sentences formulation.
Perfect high quality final result: 1216 total words and 1001 clean words.
In this 38th part I translated about the other command line options and, after half of the file, about the Environment Variables options.

Words left in English

This is a list of words I considered to left in English in order to give a more understandable translation.
My choice is based both on the project owners guidelines and on the web research carried out by myself.

Difficult words/sentences to translate in Italian

In this report finally I met something more difficult than usual that I think I managed well anyway:

  • Sentence #1

Use bundled Mozilla CA store as supplied by current Node.js version or use OpenSSL's default CA store.


  • Sentence #2

The bundled CA store, as supplied by Node.js, is a snapshot of Mozilla CA store that is fixed at release time.


  • Sentence #3

Asynchronous system APIs are used by Node.js whenever possible, but where they
do not exist, libuv's threadpool is used to create asynchronous node APIs based
on synchronous system APIs.


What did I learn new?

  • Stack Trace - What is a Stack Trace and how it works in it is a report of the active stack frames at a certain point in time during the execution of a program. When a program is run, memory is often dynamically allocated in two places; the stack and the heap. Memory is contiguously allocated on a stack but not on a heap, thus reflective of their names.
  • Heap - What is an Heap and how it works with the stack trace: it is a specialized tree-based data structure that satisfies the heap property: if P is a parent node of C, then the key (the value) of P is either greater than or equal to (in a max heap) or less than or equal to (in a min heap) the key of C. The node at the "top" of the heap (with no parents) is called the root node.
  • Thread Pool - What is a Thread Pool and how it works in it is a software design pattern for achieving concurrency of execution in a computer program. Often also called a replicated workers or worker-crew model, a thread pool maintains multiple threads waiting for tasks to be allocated for concurrent execution by the supervising program. By maintaining a pool of threads, the model increases performance and avoids latency in execution due to frequent creation and destruction of threads for short-lived tasks. The number of available threads is tuned to the computing resources available to the program, such as parallel processors, cores, memory, and network sockets.
  • CAs - What are the CAs (Certificate Authority) and how they works with Mozilla, OpenSSL and root: a certificate authority is an entity that issues digital certificates. A digital certificate certifies the ownership of a public key by the named subject of the certificate. This allows others (relying parties) to rely upon signatures or on assertions made about the private key that corresponds to the certified public key.
    One particularly common use for certificate authorities is to sign certificates used in HTTPS, the secure browsing protocol for the World Wide Web.

Very complicated file but it contains the main essential command line options that can be used.
