comment Misunderstanding Scope in JavaScript?
Thanks for the clarification. I'm sure I can learn a few good things from these articles. For example, I've never written a JavaScript function that returns a function. I guess since functions can be passed around and functions maintain their own scope, then one can say that the scope is being passed around as well - but I dont think that is what the articles that I referenced had intended.

That's what I thought. I had forgotten the phrase lexical scope since my days in college. Looking that up seems to have a few good resources on the different types of scopes that are available. Thanks.

Thanks herby. I'll check that out. If you asked me, I would say I understand the basics. On a quick scan of the first part of that series, I didn't see anything to contradict my position that I explained in my question. Do you have a direct answer to my question or were you just recommending a few good articles?

comment Addressing a variable in VB
The case I ran into didnt necessitate pointers by any means, but I was trying to trouble shoot a unit test that was failing and there was some confusion over whether or not an object being used at one point in the stack was the same object as an object several methods away.

I thought programmers would be better than SO because I was under the impression that SO for specific troubleshooting problems but upon checking the faq again, it seems that this question may fall under there. I wasn't hoping for idle speculation, but rather that someone here would know the design decisions behind the language.
