What specifically happens when the module.exports line gets used?

In this particular video, the below line gets used when "exporting the router".

module.exports = router;

What happens when this line gets used when interpreted by Node?

1 Answer

you are exporting modules from one file, in this case the router function is being exported from that file, to be executed in another file( your main execution file )
