I use these two docs all the time - they cover javascript 1.5 rather than Photoshop's implementation of javascript (which is mostly an extension of the latter). ... index.html ... index.html ... index.html ... index.html

It's perhaps worth noting that the section on regular expressions is very good.

Here is the PDF for the ECMAScript/JavaScript Language Specification.

Its a bit difficult to read unless you've you have a background in this kind of stuff. I mainly go here as a resource of last resort since this is The Specification for the language.

JavaScript The Definitive Guide, from O'Reilly Press is a much more practical resource, especially for a dead tree version. It does an excellent job in detailing what parts of the spec the various implementations of JS implement. No info on any of the PS implementations.

It is simple and to the point. Of course the O'Reilly DHTML book sits on my desk too. I find the DHTML book's JavaScript section to be better than the actual JavaScript book.

p.s. it also looks like your links can also be found at not to mention docs for the future will be there too

When googling, just adding "mdn" to the end of some search for a term of interest is the best way to get JavaScript documentation from the relevant mozilla page.
