Built-in object (Definition)

Objects that are part of the core JavaScript implementation.


ECMAScript edition - 2

A built-in object is provided by the core interpreter independently of the host environment.

Built-in objects are available at the outset of script execution and do not need to be created. They are all native objects. Additional built-in objects may be added by the implementation over and above those specified by the core functionality in the language specification.
