<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>JavaScript Regexp prototype Property : Example-1</title>
<h1 style="color: red">JavaScript Regexp prototype Property</h1>
<hr />
<script type="text/javascript">
//This is done to make the following JavaScript code compatible to XHTML. <![CDATA[
//Create a new property called newprop.
RegExp.newprop = null;
var exp1 = new RegExp("JavaScript");
exp1.newprop = "Html Tutorial";
document.write("The value of newprop is : " +exp1.newprop);
