Ok this may be an easy one but I havent learnt actionscript in flash as yet so here goes:

I have a text file that may contaion a var thats 1 or 0

I want to load the text file var and then if the var is one go to the next frame if the var is 0 then just stay on teh frame.
I figured I do something like

loadvariable ("text.txt")
if "thevariablinthetextfile" = 1
then goto frame 2

Can you give me your help?

And also if you can recomend any books on actionscripting please

Regards

also remember that on the internet you might need to give the loadvariables command some time to download the file.
