function SymError()

P: n/a
Hi,

I am not so familiar with java-script, so here follows my question. What is
the reason of underlying script in the head-section of most web-pages ? Has
this something to do with the fact when a particular script is not found
????
Please, can anybody help me?
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--

function SymError()
{
return true;
}

window.onerror = SymError;

//-->
</script>

It has to do with the fact that you are using a piece of software to achieve
a level of security it cannot provide without understanding how it (Norton
Internet Security 2003, by *Sym*antec) "works" in the first place.
Uninstall it and read <http://www.interhack.net/pubs/fwfaq/> instead, you
are better off without it. BTW: Google (Groups) is your friend. [psf 6.1]

I don't see where java-script is that big a deal, compared to people
confusing actual Java code and javascript code.

But technically, and I have seen you say it a lot, the language is
"ECMAScript and its implementations".

No. Its not a "fact that you are..... for security". That snippet of
code does nothing but suppress error messages (when it works) in a
browser. Symantec may be attempting to provide security via a firewall,
but that has nothing to do with that snippet of code.

It appears it worked just fine, 4 times in a row in fact.
