[OpenAjaxIDE] Default for <returns> is void?

There is no “Undefined” type, so that would be inconsistent. On the other hand, there is a void operator that returns undefined and fits our needs here.
I think we already had this discussion (and I was the one who didn’t know about void at the time)

Hi Kin,
I had misread the ECMA-262 spec. You are right. There is no 'void' data type, and there is indeed an "Undefined" data type. (Uppercase instead of lowercase). I believe what we need to do to the spec is:

(1) Say that the lack of a <returns> sub-element is equivalent to <returns datatype="Undefined"/>
(2) In the description of the 'datatype' attribute, change "void" to "Undefined"

Why not have it be “undefined” to be consistent with JS since there is no “void” data type?

Just checking - please tell me if you disagree:

If a <method> does not include a <returns> sub-element, then I assume that the default is equivalent to:

<method>
...
<returns datatype="void"/>
</method>
