Example text

However, comments are incredibly important for the overall maintainability of the code. Opening a file without any comments may seem like a fun adventure, but when there are deadlines to meet, this task turns into torture. Appropriately written comments help tell the story of code, allowing other developers to drop into a part of the story without needing to hear the beginning. Style guidelines don’t always cover commenting styles, but I consider them important enough to warrant their own section.

The format of switch statements is rarely included in style guides when this style is used, primarily because it is the format that many editors use automatically. Although this is the format that I prefer, both Crockford’s Code Conventions and the Dojo Style Guide recommend a slightly different format: switch(condition) { case "first": // code break; case "second": // code break; case "third": // code break; default: // code } 32 | Chapter 3: Statements and Expressions The major difference between this and the previous format is that the case keyword is aligned to the same column as the switch keyword.

JSLint warns when continue is used. JSHint does not warn when continue is used. 36 | Chapter 3: Statements and Expressions The for-in Loop The for-in loop is used to iterate over properties of an object. log("Property value is " + object[prop]); } A problem with for-in is that it returns not only instance properties of an object but also all properties it inherits through the prototype. You may thus end up with unanticipated results when iterating through properties on your own object. For this reason, it’s best to filter the for-in loop to only instance properties by using hasOwnProperty().
