Hello - a feature suggestion

There is no "start of the code" other than the time when the JavaScript 
is parsed. But as JavaScript can be in multiple places (e.g. included in 
script tags somewhere in the page) and even be added at run time, it is 
not clear, what would need to be evaluated again and what not. Also the 
page may be in a different state from what it was originally in the 
beginning, so without reloading the page, your code would meet 
preconditions it did not expect.

 From your StackOverflow-question:

"Given the |keydown| event is triggered only once, I consider sending 
the interpreter back to the start after the |keydown| event was 
triggered disposably, and without refreshing the page (Sorry if it seems 
absurd, I'm new to JS and failed finding the source of the bug)."

You may use the debugger and set a breakpoint to find your bug.
