Provides functionality common to all JScript objects.
new Object([value])

The optional value argument is used to convert a primitive data type (number, Boolean, string, or function) into an object. If omitted, an object with no contents is created.

The Object object is contained in all other JScript objects--all of its methods and properties are available in all other objects. The methods can be redefined in user-defined objects, and are called by JScript at appropriate times. The toString method is an example of a frequently redefined Object method.

In this language reference, the description of each Object method includes both default and object-specific implementation information for the intrinsic JScript objects.
