jsDump

jsDump

jsDump.parse(object) returns a string containing a human-readable representation of object.

jsDump is like Mozilla’s toSource(), but it works in all modern browsers.

jsDump was originally developed by Ariel Flesler. This fork based on version 1.0.0.

Tests

Use jQuery coding style. Basically, use tabs instead of spaces.
