in JavaScript [] is used to define elements in an Array,


var myArray=["Book", "Car", 54, 143];

I think in this case the [] are just there for visual purposes [so that the text is shown like this]

since they are using ' ' on either bracket

No an array is to store functions, integers, object laterals and variables.

You have to have access through things some how and an array is different way to store a lot of different data types.

Hi Jason I am not sure what you are referring to here but the initial question was what are the brackets used for.
