Javascript Pocket Reference

Javascript Pocket ReferenceJavascript Pocket Reference has been many times more useful than books five times it’s size and price. I keep it at work and I constantly have to hunt it down because someone else has borrowed it. It’s an indispensable reference for web developers. Certainly a well spent 10 bucks; this book is possibly the best purchase I have ever made.


JavaScript is a powerful, object-based scripting language that can be embedded directly in HTML pages. It allows you to create dynamic, interactive Web-based applications that run completely within a Web browser — JavaScript is the language of choice for developing Dynamic HTML (DHTML) content. JavaScript can be integrated effectively with CGI and Java to produce sophisticated Web applications, although, in many cases, JavaScript eliminates the need for complex CGI scripts and Java applets altogether. The JavaScript Pocket Reference is a companion volume to JavaScript: The Definitive Guide. This small book, covering JavaScript 1.2, is a handy reference guide to this popular language for Web development. It provides a complete overview of the core JavaScript language and contains summaries of both core and client-side objects, methods, and properties.
