The JavaScript Language

JavaScript was designed to resemble Java, which, in turn, looks a lot like C and C++. The difference is that Java was built as a general-purpose object language; JavaScript, on the other hand, is intended to provide a quicker and simpler language for enhancing Web pages and servers. This section describes the building blocks of JavaScript and teaches you how to combine them into legal JavaScript programs.

Note

You can find a more complete language reference for JavaScript in Appendix A, "JavaScript Language Reference." You can also find more information at the developer Web sites of Netscape at http://developer.netscape.com and Microsoft at http://msdn.microsoft.com . Finally, the ECMAScript standard can be found as ECMA-262 at http://www.ecma.ch .
