Prototype-based programming is a style of programming in which already-created objects are cloned and reused to construct a program or applications.
Its programming context and core framework is similar to an object-oriented programming structure, but it uses a classless inheritance programming style in creating duplicate object instances.
Prototype-based programming is also known as prototypal programming, prototype-oriented programming, classless programming or instance-based programming.
Java Script, Action Script, Newton Script and MOO are some prototype-based programming languages.
