Why have the three dots syntax?

shreyathakare asked in Javascript

So basically I have a doubt in java developement which i don’t get what’s the difference between these two lines:

[...cars].forEach((car) => console.log(car));

AND

cars.forEach((car) => console.log(car));

The triple dots are called the object spread operator. Basically it allows you to expand variables in useful ways to simplify the code you're writing. Here's a couple articles about it:
