    Out of curiosity: Server-side JavaScript??

    I was wondering. Are there any plans by anyone to come out with a server-side version of JavaScript? I mean, JavScript can be a very useful language, but it all depends on compatibility and enablement. I think a server-side version of JavaScript would be a very useful language, because it wouldn't depend on the browser or wether or not the user enables JS. PHP and other server-side languages can't do a lot of things JavaScript can do. Anyone know if there are plans of coming out with something similar to this?

    Hay man, your in luck!

    Server-side JavaScript has been around since the early days. I have had a bit of a play with it, though, i found it to be a bit of a pain when compared to ASP and PHP. Here is a good reference.

    By the way, you can also use JavaScript to write ASP.NET and CGI applications.

    cool, never would have thought an idea of that...

    - nested functions, how do you nest functions, don't you just call them and pass control and then get control back?
    - sendmail class, I like that
    - and a lot more, i think i'm interested
