Frame 2 IV

You will find the fifth frame is the one titled 'convert_to_lowercase'. Once again, it helps to name things that make sense. There are a number of tutorials on the net that deal with this topic to varying degrees of competency so I will not cover them here. Just accept that it works -- it does. : )

Set Variable: "m" = 0
Set Variable: "n" = 0
Set Variable: "p" = 0
We need three counters. Remember I mentioned there were three loops going on: One to keep detecting new user input (this is done via a 'Frame' go to action. Another loop to count through the list of links. And another to step through the characters in each link. The last variable you see here 'p' is used as a counter to count how many items match our user's input.

Comment: start counting (up to total links)

Loop While (n
'n' is our counter to keep track of which
link we are on. We only cycle through 'n' one time. In other words, n counts
from 1 up to the total amount of links in the list, then we're done.

» 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.
