I have this sentence:
"Whether the toString function can be applied successfully to a host object is implementation-dependent"
What is the meaning of "implementation-dependent"?
P.S If you need additional information, inform me.

It's a common phrase in the computer world, but unknown in ordinary English.
It means that the language or system specification does not say whether or not you can do this: somebody implementing the system can choose to let you, or choose not to.
