A very big reason that you don't have this kind of thing in Flash is
because of the language barrier...
Lingo is a very robust OOP language with many MANY built in functions...
Flash is a basic half-procedural language that requires work arounds and all
sorts of hairy code to do things... often that hairy code is very techincal
in nature and requires a lot more of a programmer than a similar lingo
script would.
Its kinda funny... what I see in Flash now is kinda similar to what I saw in
assembler back in the day... hmmm....
there's an idea... go dig up my old Zen of... series from Abrash.. that
might prove to be interesting..

Subject: FLASH: Flash/Director Integration


Have been meaning to pass this on to the group for a while.

There is a site, Director-Online, which is an amazing resource for
Director-related issues. They have a section called- Multimedia
Handyman- which lays out tutorials for some of the whizzier stuff you
can do in Director. A couple of months back they ran an excellent
"How-To" regarding creating buttons in Flash that kick off events in
Director/Shockwave. Have noticed a few posts around this on the list.
Here's the direct link to the article:

Now if we could only get ActionScript tutorials that are as well
presented.
