// Prepare actor input
const input = {
    "workerInput": {},
    "workerOptions": {},
    "workerCount": 2

(async () => {
    // Run the actor and wait for it to finish
    const run = await"pocesar/spawn-workers").call(input);

    // Fetch and print actor results from the run's dataset (if any)
    console.log('Results from dataset');
    const { items } = await client.dataset(run.defaultDatasetId).listItems();
    items.forEach((item) => {
