OBJECT:  Object

Object is the primitive Javascript object from which all other objects are derived. They therefore have all the methods defined for Object.
It is created by using the Object constructor as follows:
new Object()
constructor Property
This specifies a function to create an object's property and is inherited by all objects from their prototype.
Syntax: Object.constructor
prototype Property
This allows the addition of properties and methods to any object.
Syntax: Object.prototype.name = value
eval Method
The eval method is deprecated as a method of Object, but is still used as a high level function. It evaluates a string of JavaScript in the context of an object.
Syntax: Object.eval(string)
toSource MethodNetscape Only Feature
The toSource method returns a literal representing the source code of an object. This can then be used to create a new object.
Syntax: Object.toSource()
toString Method
The toString method returns a string representing a specified object.
Syntax: Object.toString()
unwatch MethodNetscape Only Feature

Syntax: Object.valueOf()
watch MethodNetscape Only Feature
