// as if from a fake module in the correct base directory. It also will
// avoid several bugs with the `resolve` module (Node's is necessarily
// more stable).

var m = new Module(path.join(dirname, "dummy.js"))
m.filename =
m.paths = Module._nodeModulePaths(dirname)
m.loaded = true
// eslint-disable-next-line global-require
var exports = m.require(file)
// Remove the module and its children from the cache and dereference all
// `require`d children from their parent. This implies all scripts
// loaded are not cached, which helps cut down on persistent memory
// usage some (especially when loading tests).
delete Module._cache[m.filename]

delete Module._cache[m.children[i].filename]
m.children.length = 0
return exports
