Flow Modifiers

So far, we have gone over ActionScript as a language that executes code, one line after another, without stopping. Now we are going to go over some statements that redefine how ActionScript functions.

Flow modifiers are statements that adjust the natural order the interpreter takes when reading ActionScript. When the interpreter hits a flow modifier, it doesn't just run the statement and move on. Instead, it runs the statement to see whether a condition has been met. If the condition hasn't been met, sometimes the interpreter will move on, but other times it will stay at that spot until the condition has been met. In most cases, this condition is user-defined.
