RegExp source


isRegExp(value) → {boolean} <constructor> source

Returns whether the given value is a regexp, regardless of which context it comes from. The context may be another frame.

This is the proper idiomatic way to test whether an object is a regexp and replaces the less generally useful instanceof check (which does not work across contexts) and the strangeness that the typeof a regexp is "object".
