Could somebody answer this for me? I started learning
actionscript 2. Now, there is actionscript 3.0 with flash 9. In
actionscript 2 I could code things right there in flash and control
movie clips etc... In trying to learn actionscript 3, everything
talks about coding in flexbuilder 2. Is my assumption correct that
I can no longer code right in flash? If I can, are there any books
which talk about learning actionscript 3 inside flash? I can't
believe I would now have to pay hundreds of dollars to accomplish
the same thing I was doing in actionscript 2. Thanks!

support for Flex 2 because Flex is released.
Sure you can code in Flash 9 (in AS3, AS2, AS1). But - just
as with AS2 - it's not recommended. Code should reside in classes.
And, I must add, AS3 is a huge improvement but it's something
