README.md

In Javascript, "Everything is (or acts like) an Object" We need to write "typeis.js" due to a problem (type check) arised other than except the conveniences it is a providing to us.

typeis.js

Typeis. it's the smart and simple javascript type check and validation library ~226 Bytes;

Value Native Typeis.js
Undeclared variables undefined ---
undefined undefined ---
null object ---
Booleans boolean Boolean
Numbers number Number
String string String
Functions function Function
Array object Array
Object object Object
Date object Date
RegExp object RegExp

Be careful!

Everything in JavaScript acts like an object, with the only two exceptions being null and undefined. *JavaScript Garden Typeis.js acts like an property; doesn't work null and undefined types because they doesn't have properties.
