Flash, again

2001-01-22 17:28:57+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

I hate Flash 5. They got so close! First, the lack of typing on the variables means that occasionally i++ will have the numeric variable i interpreted as a string, leading to functionally i.concat("1") (with no pattern to this occurrence that I can discern), now I'm dealing with a place where _level0.loadVariables("./saveactions.cgi",POST) is resulting in a GET operation with no variables. And the code looks exactly the same as another instance of it that works, and this code used to work!

Used to be as you got closer to a certain size of code (64k being popular on 8 bit machines) the code would misbehave - you'd add or remove extra code to get 'past' it. If they only gave you the source code like Borland.
