Definition: In ActionScripting, an array is an object that lists various items/objects, from numbers to variables to values. Each array object is represented by a number called an index, which defines its place in the array. For example:

Array[0] = 1;
Array[1] = myvariable;
Array[2] = "Hello world";

In this example the array has three items in it; an integer at index 0, a variable at index 1, and a string at index 2.

Values in an array can be manipulated within the array and called for use within other functions.
