Why You Shouldn’t Use ‘var’ Anymore

I’m confused. I don’t see how the [0, 1, 2, 3, 4] magic can happen without creating two scopes, one for the for header, in which i++ can run, and one for the loop body, which on each run re-binds the current value of i from the loop header, and shadows it (an implicit let i=i, if that were syntactically valid).

I had an admittedly quick look at the specification, and it didn’t enlighten me. The way I read it, I would say the behavior Nathan reports that IE exhibits, is the behavior according to the spec. I would be happy if somebody could explain this. Where are the special rules around for specified?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
