API

copy( target:Object, source:Object[, no_overwrite:Boolean] ):Object

Copies the properties – accessible via Object.keys – from the source Object to the target Object and returns the target Object.

Example:


    var copy = require( 'useful-copy' );

    var foo = { one : 1, two : 2, three : 3 },
        bar = copy( {}, foo );

    bar          // returns => { "one" : 1, "two" : 2, "three" : 3 }

    foo === bar  // returns => false

    copy( foo, { three : 3.3, four : 4 }, true ); // returns => { "one" : 1, "two" : 2, "three" : 3, "four" : 4 }

copy.merge( target:Array|Object, source:Array|Object ):Boolean

Performs a "deep copy" of all the properties in source to target, so that target does not reference any child Arrays and/ or Objects that belong to source.

copy.update( target:Array|Object, source:Array|Object ):Boolean

Performs a "deep copy" of all the properties in source that are not already contained in target, so that target does not reference any child Arrays and/ or Objects that belong to source.

This works similarly to copy.merge except that existing properties are not overwritten.
