— I get I can use rest operator again instead of apply too, but apply actually is needed here


Example real code:

FORK_CHILD: function (bg = false, ...args) {
const pid =, bg, ...args);
return pid;

— That was one of my first thoughts but they're part of the prototype

— Kernel.prototype.sysCallProcedures

— I want the this var for Kernel.prototype.sysCallProcedures.ANYTHING to be set to the instance of Kernel

— But because they're in the sysCallProcedures object, this is undefined unless I use apply or call


var test = function () {
this.thing = "Hello world";
test.prototype.stuff = {
testFunc: function () {
var testInstance = new test();
VM505:6 undefined

— Example code

VM505:6 Hello world

— This is what I am doing in prod code right now, that I dislike a lot ^
