Version 3.18.1

File: yui/js/yui-core.js

            The YUI module contains the components required for building the YUI seed file.
            This includes the script loading mechanism, a simple queue, and the core
            utilities for the library.
            @module yui
            @submodule yui-base
            var CACHED_DELIMITER = '__',
                hasOwn   = Object.prototype.hasOwnProperty,
                isObject = Y.Lang.isObject;
            Returns a wrapper for a function which caches the return value of that function,
            keyed off of the combined string representation of the argument values provided
            when the wrapper is called.
            Calling this function again with the same arguments will return the cached value
            rather than executing the wrapped function.
            Note that since the cache is keyed off of the string representation of arguments
            passed to the wrapper function, arguments that aren't strings and don't provide
            a meaningful `toString()` method may result in unexpected caching behavior. For
            example, the objects `{}` and `{foo: 'bar'}` would both be converted to the
            string `[object Object]` when used as a cache key.
            @method cached
            @param {Function} source The function to memoize.
            @param {Object} [cache={}] Object in which to store cached values. You may seed
              this object with pre-existing cached values if desired.
            @param {any} [refetch] If supplied, this value is compared with the cached value
              using a `==` comparison. If the values are equal, the wrapped function is
              executed again even though a cached value exists.
            @return {Function} Wrapped function.
            @for YUI
            Y.cached = function (source, cache, refetch) {
                /*jshint expr: true*/
                cache || (cache = {});
                return function (arg) {
                    var key = arguments.length > 1 ?
                  , CACHED_DELIMITER) :
                    /*jshint eqeqeq: false*/
                    if (!(key in cache) || (refetch && cache[key] == refetch)) {
                        cache[key] = source.apply(source, arguments);
                    return cache[key];
            Returns the `location` object from the window/frame in which this YUI instance
            operates, or `undefined` when executing in a non-browser environment
            (e.g. Node.js).
            It is _not_ recommended to hold references to the `window.location` object
            outside of the scope of a function in which its properties are being accessed or
            its methods are being called. This is because of a nasty bug/issue that exists
            in both Safari and MobileSafari browsers:
            [WebKit Bug 34679](
            @method getLocation
            @return {location} The `location` object from the window/frame in which this YUI
                instance operates.
            @since 3.5.0
            Y.getLocation = function () {
                // It is safer to look this up every time because yui-base is attached to a
                // YUI instance before a user's config is applied; i.e. `` does
                // not point the correct window object when this file is loaded.
                var win =;
                // It is not safe to hold a reference to the `location` object outside the
                // scope in which it is being used. The WebKit engine used in Safari and
                // MobileSafari will "disconnect" the `location` object from the `window`
                // when a page is restored from back/forward history cache.
                return win && win.location;
            Returns a new object containing all of the properties of all the supplied
            objects. The properties from later objects will overwrite those in earlier
            Passing in a single object will create a shallow copy of it. For a deep copy,
            use `clone()`.
            @method merge
            @param {Object} objects* One or more objects to merge.
            @return {Object} A new merged object.
            Y.merge = function () {
                var i      = 0,
                    len    = arguments.length,
                    result = {},
                for (; i < len; ++i) {
                    obj = arguments[i];
                    for (key in obj) {
                        if (, key)) {
                            result[key] = obj[key];
                return result;
            Mixes _supplier_'s properties into _receiver_.
            Properties on _receiver_ or _receiver_'s prototype will not be overwritten or
            shadowed unless the _overwrite_ parameter is `true`, and will not be merged
            unless the _merge_ parameter is `true`.
            In the default mode (0), only properties the supplier owns are copied (prototype
            properties are not copied). The following copying modes are available:
              * `0`: _Default_. Object to object.
              * `1`: Prototype to prototype.
              * `2`: Prototype to prototype and object to object.
              * `3`: Prototype to object.
              * `4`: Object to prototype.
            @method mix
            @param {Function|Object} receiver The object or function to receive the mixed
            @param {Function|Object} supplier The object or function supplying the
              properties to be mixed.
            @param {Boolean} [overwrite=false] If `true`, properties that already exist
              on the receiver will be overwritten with properties from the supplier.
            @param {String[]} [whitelist] An array of property names to copy. If
              specified, only the whitelisted properties will be copied, and all others
              will be ignored.
            @param {Number} [mode=0] Mix mode to use. See above for available modes.
            @param {Boolean} [merge=false] If `true`, objects and arrays that already
              exist on the receiver will have the corresponding object/array from the
              supplier merged into them, rather than being skipped or overwritten. When
              both _overwrite_ and _merge_ are `true`, _merge_ takes precedence.
            @return {Function|Object|YUI} The receiver, or the YUI instance if the
              specified receiver is falsy.
