I heard/read something in regards to the 'this' reference. I read about using 'this' and understand its use but the question pertained to whether something was unchangeable. Is anyone familiar with the unchangeable part? What is unchangeable? I understand the use of 'this' but couldn't recall seeing anything to the latter. Thanks in advance.

"this" is a readonly variable and can't be changed.
