Javascript Closure

Even though there are alternative technologies such as Flash and Flex, Javascript is still being considered as the mainstream. I started my interested in Javascript by working with one of my early mentors, who worked for Netscape back in the first browser war. ;-) He uses Javascript to create prototypes of the code piece, and created many everyday programmer’s utilities by writing a small piece of Javascript. It was one of the most fascinating thing I’ve seen then. Now I am pretty much as in love of Javascript as my mentor does.

There are many shortcomings in the language itself, but Prototypal inheritance, Closure and many other built-in features makes Javascript one of the most flexible and powerful computer language.

Here is the reference to one of my favorite Javascript Closure documentation:
