namespace KJS  {

   * @short Execution context.
   * Represents an execution context, as specified by section 10 of the ECMA
   * spec.
   * An execution context contains information about the current state of the
   * script - the scope for variable lookup, the value of "this", etc. A new
   * execution context is entered whenever global code is executed (e.g. with
   * Interpreter::evaluate()), a function is called (see
   * Object::call()), or the builtin "eval" function is executed.
   * Most inheritable functions in the KJS api take a ExecState pointer as
   * their first parameter. This can be used to obtain a handle to the current
   * execution context.
  class Context {
    Context(JSObject* global, Interpreter*, JSObject* thisV, 
            FunctionBodyNode* currentBody, CodeType type = GlobalCode, 
            Context* callingContext = 0, FunctionImp* function = 0, const List* args = 0);

     * Returns the scope chain for this execution context. This is used for
     * variable lookup, with the list being searched from start to end until a
     * variable is found.
     * @return The execution context's scope chain
    const ScopeChain& scopeChain() const { return scope; }

     * Returns the variable object for the execution context. This contains a
     * property for each variable declared in the execution context.
     * @return The execution context's variable object
    JSObject* variableObject() const { return m_variable; }
    void setVariableObject(JSObject* v) { m_variable = v; }

     * Returns the "this" value for the execution context. This is the value
     * returned when a script references the special variable "this". It should
     * always be an Object, unless application-specific code has passed in a
     * different type.
     * The object that is used as the "this" value depends on the type of
     * execution context - for global contexts, the global object is used. For
     * function objewcts, the value is given by the caller (e.g. in the case of
     * obj.func(), obj would be the "this" value). For code executed by the
     * built-in "eval" function, the this value is the same as the calling
     * context.
     * @return The execution context's "this" value
    JSObject* thisValue() const { return m_thisVal; }

     * Returns the context from which the current context was invoked. For
     * global code this will be a null context (i.e. one for which
     * isNull() returns true). You should check isNull() on the returned
     * value before calling any of it's methods.
