comment Advanced JavaScript design patterns
@Raynos I own it, but I haven't spent much time with it. From what I'm able to tell, it's solid. It explains a bunch of interesting patterns I haven't seen mentioned in other books/articles (patterns like Observer, Mediator, Proxy, Strategy, but also all the core patterns like Facade, Factory, Singleton, Sandbox, Module, Curry), so I consider it worth buying.

comment Comma as a separator vs. comma as a delimiter
@CapeCodGunny Yes, I'm just pointing out that there are confronting definitions. I would like to see definitions from other references, too.

comment Comma as a separator vs. comma as a delimiter
@Oded This Wikipedia article provides different definitions. According to it, your first example would be a field delimiter, while your second example isn't represented in that article at all.

comment Comma as a separator vs. comma as a delimiter
While your answer does explain the quote from my question quite well, the Wikipedia page for "Delimiter" provides different definitions. According to that article, a delimiter specifies the boundary between regions. So, the "comma as a separator" example from your question above would be called the comma field delimiter, while the "comma as a delimiter" example isn't represented anywhere on that Wiki page.

@YannisRizos Yea, I know Crockford. He's a great educator. :)

comment Comma as a separator vs. comma as a delimiter
Yes, in parameter lists the comma must be used as a separator, whereas in array literals the comma can either be used as a separator or a delimiter. Or in layman's terms: You can put a comma after the last array element, but you don't have to.

@jfriend00 If there is a difference between the terms delimiter and separator, I want to know it... I like to know stuff :)
