How do you read API documentation?
Compared to answers, examples, or narrative documentation, API documentation can be an intimidating read: it's much more like an Encylopedia than a novel.
API documentation will have a few explicit classes of things that are documented. Here are some distinctions that aren't always laid out in other kinds of documentation:
var yelling = 'hi'.toUpperCase()Remember that, though documentation uses the # character to show what's an instance method, you don't actually use that symbol in your source code.
fromCharCodemethod of strings is an example of this: it'll be documented as a static method and called like
String.fromCharCode(20). Notice that we're not calling this on a specific string, but the String class itself.
