Friday, March 28th, 2008

Still on the fence about how to get down to the nitty gritty with Number and int in as3. There are a lot of people running low level tests and writing articles:

Feels like Number is still the way to go for most coordinate based stuff and int is good for indexing, unless I am building something that has to keep track of aloooot of things.
