Description Petr Pisl 2012-08-17 08:44:48 UTC
Try this code

/*global console, MyClass, MyFunc,*/
MyClass = {
    foo: null,
    init: function() {
        'use strict';
       var getsUsed = 'fubar';      // <- marked as unused = new MyFunc({
            'useful': getsUsed

there are also some other cases when variables are marked as unused though they are used:

var Core = Core || {};

Core.needModules(function () {
    "use strict";

    var REGEXP = /^[+]?\d{1,20}$/; // REGEXP marked as unused

    Core.Test = {
        test: function (value) {
            var fieldType; // fieldType marked as unused


            switch (fieldType) {
            case "test":

The first case fixed as duplicate of #218090. The Fordfrog's case needs to be still fixed. I will separate it in the new issue.
