    Instance names and optimization

    Hi
    I've heard that reducing the number of characters in a variable name is an effective way of getting scripts to run faster. Does the same hold true for function names and the instance names for MCs??

    any advice appreciated!

    the old "obsolete" flash 4 syntax still performs faster than nice dot scripts
    CRAZY! I didn't know that!
