This is going to be a relatively short post. We have been doing a lot of [x] vs [y] vs [z] posts lately and this one is no different. Today, I figured that we would look at Prototype.call() vs Prototype.apply(). Both apply() and call() are used to invoke functions. The difference is that call uses a comma separated list of arguments and apply uses an array of arguments.
For the sake of clarity, both examples do the same thing beyond the one difference. They both have teachers, students, and persons but where one uses
Person.apply(this, [fname, lname]); the other one uses
Person.call(this, fname, lname);.
