18.1. Global Functions

Global functions are built-in functions that are available throughout an entire movie—they can be invoked from any frame, button, or event handler in a movie (unlike methods, which must be invoked using a reference to a specific object).

Table 18-1 lists the global functions available in Flash 6, including two new global functions: clearInterval( ) and setInterval( ). All other global functions listed in the table are available in Flash 5 as well. Table 18-1 also lists the directives and pragmas, which begin with the # character — namely, #include, #initclip, and #endinitclip.
