The console.log() method will provide an output message to the web console. The message can be a single string (with optional substitution values) or any one or more JavaScript objects. 

Node.js console is a global object that prints different levels of messages to stdout and stderr. There are built-in methods for printing informational, warning, and error messages. The built-in console module in Node.js will let you write log messages to standard output (stdout) and error (stderr)using the log and error functions, respectively. console.log specifically is a method for developers to write code to inform the developers what the code is doing inconspicuously. It can alert you that there's an issue, but it shouldn't replace an interactive debugger when it comes time to debug the code. 

Here is an example of how to implement a simple horizontal line on the console log in Node.js:

Follow the steps carefully to get the output easily.

  1. Install Node and Visual Studio Code on your computer.
  2. Create a new folder in your local.
  3. Open that folder in Visual Studio Code.
  4. Then create a new JS file(Eg: node.js).
  5. Copy the snippet using 'copy' button and paste it into that file.
  6. Save the file and open the terminal, use this command 'node filename(node.js)' to get the output in your console.
