re: Don't name your global JavaScript function 'clear' VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Or just don't put anything in the global scope at all 🙂 But if you must do it, just prefix your variable/function name with something unique., like so:

function GLOBAL_FN__clear() {
            document.getElementById('result').innerHTML = '';
}

Interesting post tho 👍
