Description Ms2ger 2012-04-13 09:36:24 UTC
The algorithm has:

3. If V is any other platform object, then: ...
4. If V is a platform array object, a native Array object, or a
   platform object that supports indexed properties, then: ...

The "any other" in 3. seems to suggest that 3. and 4. should be swapped.
Comment 1 Cameron McCormack 2012-04-14 03:18:13 UTC
I swapped 3 and 4 recently (so that

  void f(SomeInterfaceWithIndexedProperties x);
  void f(sequence<Something> x);

would select the former if an object of that type were passed in) but forgot to fix up the wording.

OK, thanks.
