int (Reserved word)

Reserved for future language enhancements.

The provision of this reserved keyword suggests that future versions of the ECMAScript standard may provide for a stronger data-typing model than is currently available.

This keyword also represents a Java data type and the int keyword allows for the potential extension of JavaScript interfaces to access Java applet parameters and return values.
