Q.  How can I do a C-like #include in javaScript?

A.  There is no equivalent to a #include is javaScript.
But you can use Ajax to pull in a .js file and then run it!

Here's how to do that with jQuery:

$.ajax({ type: 'GET', url: 'my_script.js', dataType: 'script' });
Or even simpler:
$.getScript(url, callback);
You can do this in pure javaScript too. Search for "Ajax" here for more info.
