Required Functions

This function requires the following functions which are included automatically:

  • has()
    Every object descended from Object inherits the hasOwnProperty method. This method can be used to determine whether an object has the specified property as a direct property of that object; unlike the in operator, this method does not check down the object's prototype chain.
  • typeOf()
    Either gets the type of a value or adds a constructor registering its custom type name.
