Description

JavaScript Unleashed serves as a complete reference to the JavaScript language for the experienced programmer as well as a guide for developing JavaScript but familiar with other programming languages. Over the years JavaScript has solidified its position as the de facto standard in Web site scripting-even Microsoft uses JavaScript on its Web sites. And the capabilities of JavaScript have gradually been extended to the server side and to third-party products. JavaScript can be used in both Microsofts .NET environment and Windows Script Host, and Adobe Web development products are beginning to use JavaScript as their built-in scripting language.
