Paradoxical relationships between the steersman and that steered. In short: trust your process, don't micromanage. There will be due time for correction and calibration.

I'm reminded of the story of Milton Erickson as a boy, who saw a runaway horse gallop into the village in obvious distress. Milton stopped the horse, calmed it down, mounted it and then guided it back on to the road it had come in on. Every so often the horse would stop to graze, but Milton nudged it gently on. Eventually it arrived at a farmstead where an amazed farmer said "Thank goodness! I thought we'd lost that horse forever. But how did you know where to go"
"I didn't know" he answered "but the horse did."

Issue with jslint's 'unused' [unused paramter] error.

I'm using String's .replace to convert (e.g.) -webkit-transform to WebkitTransform, or background-color into backgroundColor

The function I am using to do the regex replace does not use the first parameter, I really don't need the hyphen, just the letter after it, i.e. the subpattern indicated as p1 in the code that follows.

var camelCase = function (str) {
    return str.replace(/\-([a-z])/gi, function (match, p1) {
        return p1.toUpperCase();
    });
};

jslint says unused 'match'. Right. I only need p1, but I can't get p1 by name without some kind of dummy parameter at the start of the parameter list. 

If I delete the parameter list and replace p1 with arguments[1] jslint tells me to use a named parameter instead.

I feel sure I am overlooking something, but I can't find a way to omit the first named parameter apart from using arguments.

Is there a way around this?

Kinda hacky but you could remove p1 and return match.substr(1).toUppercase() instead.

That sounds like something my ex's son had. I can't remember what it was called. It had lots of plastic tools and fake power tools as well. I know this doesn't help.
