With constructors under our belts, we can now talk about initialization of structs and other types. This is a far more complex topic than in C#. Read on to learn a lot of nitty-gritty details!

If you’re thinking “I know what an
int is”, you need to take this little quiz to find out for sure!
AS3 has two integer types:
uint. In my experience, most AS3 programmers just use
int everywhere and ignore
uint. This is usually acceptable as the need for unsigned integers is rare compared to their signed counterparts. However, there are significant performance differences between the two. Read on for the impact of
uint on your loops. The original version of this article’s performance test contained a small-but-critical error that led to a lot of incorrect analysis and results. This version of the article has been corrected.
Five months ago I said I’d talked about explicit type conversion. I hadn’t, really. What I talked about before was type casts. A cast changes the type, not the data. Today, I’m actually going to talk about type conversion and show you the costs of converting between all of your favorite types:
String, and even
