Should JSLint flag window.execScript as evil?
- View SourceI probably will get flamed for using eval to set global variables, but
I needed it at the time.
Using eval in IE didn't work as I needed, so I had to use the IE
specific window.execScript. I found this tip in a comment to a blog
the global scope synchronously. It contains code that works across
browsers, and does so by testing the runtime execution and not
sniffing the User Agent.
So, my question is should JSLint check for window.execScript if
(option.browser && !option.evil) and warn that "window.execScript is
evil"? I realize that this is an IE specific check, but I thought it
was at least worth suggesting.
