Description Jens Alfke 2009-11-11 11:44:19 PST
The generated code for V8 bindings uses "return v8::Undefined()" when it needs to return from the binding without a specific return value (e.g. on error, or if the result is undefined.) This results in a function call. V8 interprets a return value of an empty/NULL handle as being the same as Undefined(), so I've changed the bindings to do that. This makes the bindings slightly smaller and faster, as there are many instances of this construct.
