API

toArray(collection): Array

Array-like structures like arguments, NodeList or HTMLCollection, will be converted into Arrays.

Date, String, Regex, null, Object, and Function will convert into an Array, with a single element being whatever was passed to toArray.

undefined will return an empty Array

Alternatives

wilmoore/to-array.js: slightly different semantics.
