I need to get an old bit of AS1 coverted to AS2 if possible?:

getURL(/:var1, "_blank");
Also, if possible, i need to add "_link" to the variable name before it's read from the text file e.g.:

getURL(/:var_name + "1_link", "_blank");
as the text file contains URLs with variable names like flash1_link, cms1_link etc
