    What you're describing is not really possible with JS. Your best bet would be to look at the "V8 engine" source code. It is the interpreter used in Node.js and Chrome (and I think Edge would be using it too as Edge is built on Chromium). But there is nothing forcing Node.js to use V8, there are other JS interpreters. https://github.com/v8/v8
