Hi everyone, and welcome to another exciting edition of Boring JavaScript! Today, we take a look at the ‘copyWithin()’ method on Arrays. I’ll tell you exactly how to use it and attempt to tell you why to use it. But … frankly I can’t find a good use for it. If you know of one, watch the video and let me know in the comments.
