How to fix this: The "sys" module is now called "util". It should have a similar interface.

Replace all calls to `require("sys")` with `require("util")`

Replace all instances of `require('sys')` with `require('util')`.

I should write a script that does that for all existing npm modules…

Ya got that point, but it requires to check all modules & do it manually...

was just hoping for some automatic fix...

because in error, it doesn't mention which module is doing require('sys')..

Semi-automatic:

NODE_DEBUG=sys node script.js

Makes Node print a stack trace that tells you where the sys module is
being included.

Fully automatic, potentially dangerous:

perl -i -pe "s/require('sys')/require('util')/g" $(find . -name \*.js)
