    EcmaScript ?

    Hi people,

    Just few basics questions regarding EcmaScript.

    Is EcmaScript the mother of JavaScript?
    Correct me If I'm wrong.

    And the current latest version of EcmaScript is version 5 ?
    Correct me again if I'm wrong.

    Thanks in advance.

    Javascript is an implementation of ECMAScript (as is JScript and apparently ActionScript)

    i think netscape is the mother of javascript. and ECMA script is a daughter, after it was released to ECMA by nescape/mozilla. there are dozens of cousins as well. it's quite a large family.

    Since the OP got the answer needed, I'm closing it to prevent more fluff from coming in. solidcodes, if you want it re-opened, feel free to PM me.

    THREAD CLOSED.
