Just as a technicality, is there ANY object (or anything that can be placed inside of a variable) that does not extend Object?
Even the “Class” object extends Object.
On a similar note, what is the difference between these two?
var unknownObject:Object = getItem(); var unknownObject:* = getItem();
I pretty much always use “:Object”, but is there any situation where it would be better to use the latter?
I also recently found out that there is a difference when using the “as”:
myObject = (unknownObject as Object); //Works myObject = (unknownObject as *); //ERROR
