Blocked by: Blocking:


Calling: jQuery.trim(1)

results in:

Error: (text
"").replace is not a function

Source: jquery-1.3.2.js, Line: 1067

IMHO this should return "1"

What should it return on an object, function, regexp, or date object? In some cases it's just best to give the user an error asap.

Maybe you know it better than I and you're right when passing other objects to jQuery.trim, but in case of an integer it could return the string version of this integer. So the trim-regex won't be needed. I wanted to discuss this behaviour because I got the mentioned error and at first I had no idea what was wrong. Other functions also handle integers like strings, e.g. alert("123") does the same as alert(123)
