Is there a way to go to a new frame and NOT FINISH the ActionScript on the current frame

for example:

a = 1;
b = 2;
if (quit_request) {
  break from this frame;

c = 3;
d = 4;
....... etc etc

I want the playhead to go IMMEDIATELY to frame 2, WITHOUT completing the rest of the script shown...

You wold have to put what you don't want executed in an else statement.


a = 1;
b = 2;
if (quit_request) {
} else {
c = 3;
d = 4;
....... etc etc

I was afraid of that...

Oh well.


Or, I could put everything into a function...

if (quit_request) gotoAndPlay(2);
else frame5();

frame5 function () {

If I want the (quit_request) on every frame, the second way might be cleaner...
