Re: libseed-list Fwd: [Bug 610317] New: Provide a builtin dir() function

Yeah, had a chat with my Python guy here, - Object.keys() is probably the more Javascriptey way of implementing it..

Object.keys =  function(o, fn, scope){
         var ret = [];
         for(var p in o){
            if (typeof(p) != 'number') ret.push(k);;
	  return ret;

The name and very specific scope/usage are classic Python, for what it's worth. And I've actually gotten a bunch of emails asking why Seed doesn't have something similar...

Apart from the rather awful name (When I first saw it, I expected it to scan directories) - A more generic function may be better..

Note: - this does not mess with prototypes, which can cause real nightmares..

Object.filter =  function(o, fn, scope){
          var ret = [];
          for(var p in o){
              if( , o[p], p, o, ret) === false){ return ret; };
	    return ret;

Object.filter(obj, 		function(v, k, o, ret) {
			 if (typeof(k) != 'number') ret.push(k);
     ).join(' ,');

It made me wonder how much of the JS 1.6 iterator support is available in webkit.. - never really looked at it, as it's been so mozilla specific before..

Do people think this belongs on the Seed object (Seed.dir()) or should it be global? We were trying not to clutter up the global namespace, but making it global would probably make it more obvious for people coming from elsewhere.

         Summary: Provide a builtin dir() function
  Classification: Other
         Product: seed
         Version: git head

          Status: UNCONFIRMED

Just like in Python, this is doable in Javascript easily:

function dir(object)
  methods = [];
  for (z in object) if (typeof(z) != 'number') methods.push(z);
  return methods.join(', ');
