      At the bash prompt:

      echo "db.collection.find({" > broken_pipe.js
      echo "})" >> broken_pipe.js
      cat broken_pipe.js| mongo

      This gives the output:

      User interrupt detected; exiting...

      Contrast this with:

      mongo broken_pipe.js

      which gives the output:

      MongoDB shell version: 3.0.0-rc7
      connecting to: test

      Note that this break happened between 2.8.0-rc5 and 3.0.0-rc6.

    Description

      The mongo shell breaks when given a multiline function, either directly in the shell or when piped in.

      This is a problem because breaking functions into multiple lines can dramatically improve readability, and does not change the fact that they are valid javascript.
