Property Summary
Function constructor Specifies the function that creates an object's prototype.
Number length Specifies the number of arguments expected by the function.

Methods Summary
void apply() Applies the method of another object in the context of a different object (the calling object); arguments can be passed as an Array object.
void bind() Creates a new function which, when called, itself calls this function in the context of the provided value, with a given sequence of arguments preceding any provided when the new function was called.
void call() Calls (executes) a method of another object in the context of a different object (the calling object); arguments can be passed as they are.
String toString() Returns a string representing the source code of the function.

function book(name, author) {
	this.name = name;
	this.author = author;
}

function book_with_topic(name, author, topic) {
	this.topic = topic;
	book.apply(this, arguments);
}
book_with_topic.prototype = new book();

var aBook = new book_with_topic("name","author","topic");

bind()

Creates a new function which, when called, itself calls this function in the context of the provided value, with a given sequence of arguments preceding any provided when the new function was called.

Sample

var x = 9, 
	module = {
		getX: function() { 
		     return this.x;
		},
		x: 81
	};
//  "module.getX()" called, "module" is "this", "module.x" is returned
module.getX(); // > 81
//  "getX()" called, "this" is global, "x" is returned
getX(); // > 9
//  store a reference with "module" bound as "this"
var boundGetX = getX.bind(module);
//  "boundGetX()" called, "module" is "this" again, "module.x" is returned
boundGetX(); // > 81

call()

Calls (executes) a method of another object in the context of a different object (the calling object); arguments can be passed as they are.
