GetValue() (Function/internal)

Internal private function.


ECMAScript edition - 2

This internal function returns the value contained in the property belonging to the object pointed at by the reference item passed in its argument.

If the passed-in argument is not a reference item, it is returned as the result.

If the object being referred to does not exist, a runtime error is generated.

Otherwise the usual Get() function behavior is invoked for the property named in the reference.
