Developer Connection

If you thought (like I did) that TFS documentation was bad, check out this beauty:

http://developer.apple.com/documentation/appleapplications/Reference/WebKitDOMRef/DOMSelection_idl/Classes/DOMSelection/index.html

As a mental exercise, try to guess what does empty() do? Does it empty the selection? Or does it return true if the selection is empty?

Since the return type is void and ti dont take any params im guessing it empties the selection ;) But yeah its not documentation, its lack of it.

Well, it's difficult to return 'true' from a function declared as _void_ empty();

Some documentations out there does really suck. Apple's usually not in this category. However, the likes of http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd389403(VS.85).aspx might actually be among the forerunners.
