myDate.toUTCString() in ECMAScript 262

Returns a string form of the Date in a convenient, human-readable form in UTC.

Return Type


The actual format of the string is not specified in the ECMAScript specifications, and hence may be implementation-dependant.

Note that this is the official method which replaced Date.toGMTString(); though they behave identically, Date.toUTCString() is part of the standard, and Date.toGMTString() is not.
