Description

Function Outlining transforms a single or group of statements into a new function declaration.

Code Annotation Example

// @jscrambler define functionOutlining {features: [opaqueFunctions]} as fo
// @jscrambler enable fo

Examples

Consider the following function declaration:

function addPrefix (array, prefix) {
  var i = array.length - 1;
  for (i; i >= 0; i--) {
    array[i] = prefix + array[i];
  }
}

After transformation the addPrefix function will depend on functions to evaluate expressions that were previously inline:

var o = function (D) {
    return {
        M: function () {
            var V, W = arguments;
            switch (D) {
            case 0:
                V = W[0] - W[1];
                break;
            case 1:
                V = W[1] + W[0];
                break;
            }
            return V;
        },
        E: function (v) {
            D = v;
        }
    };
}();

function addPrefix(array, prefix) {
    var i;
    o.E(0);
    i = o.M(array.length, 1);
    for (i; i >= 0; i--) {
        o.E(1);
        array[i] = o.M(array[i], prefix);
    }
}

Function Outlining also has the parameter opaqueFunctions that will difficult determining which function will be executed.
