You could also just write a loop that goes through each item in the array
until it finds what you're looking for... then note what index it was found

It may seem like a slow proposition (stepping through as many as all the
items) but arrays are generally very fast to search through.

Here's the pseudo-code:

searchFor="thing I'm looking for";

for (i in myarray){
if (i==searchFor){
trace("it was found in spot "+ i);
