    Start Javascript from a link?

    I've just started to learn Javascript at college, and I made a little code that traps people in a dialogue box loop.

    var escape = 0
    for(escape === 0; escape <= 1
    confirm("Going somewhere?")

    I want to know if there is a site, or a possibility I can start this code, simple by sending friends a URL they can click on. For completely innocent purposes, of course.

    The confirm dialog is intended for debugging purposes only. In Opera it always displays a checkbox for turning off JavaScript for the current page and in Internet Explorer it displays a checkbox from the second time a dialog is displayed by the page allowing you to bypass all further dialog boxes.

    If you want to display a dialog that is not for debugging purposes then you should create your own using a lightbox script.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.
