    Autoboxing Primitive Types in JavaScript

    javascriptJavaScript

    Primitive values by rule are not objects. However when we treat a primitive type like an object, such as getting the .length of a string, JavaScript will wrap that primitive type into an object. This new object is then linked to the corresponding built-in .prototype, so that we can utilize prototype methods on primitive types.
