    ActionScript compared to C++ coding language

    In my spare time, I'm thinking about learning ActionScript which is used in coding in Macromedia Flash. Does anyone know or use ActionScript?

    I know it and use it a bit.

    Huh ... comparing it to C++ is difficult. The syntax is vaguely similar. Beyond that ... no. ECMAScript and its brothers JavaScript and ActionScript are extremely dynamic languages. C++ is a very static language. They have completely different target domains. I really don't think you can compare them.
