With eval() you can achieve similar results in AS.

//my_var has a string value of “mirza”
my_var = “mirza”;

//allocate a variable variable of the variable my_var
mirza = 1;

//has a value of 1
Well, I know that this looks very strange. But I use this method in loops to dynamically create variables like pic1, pic2, pic3.
for(i = 1; i<=5; i++){
	//current variable 
	curr_var = eval(pic + '' + i);

	//handle variable…pic1, pic1, etc

Hope you’ll find it usefull.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
