Hi apb2.

Actionscript doesn't actually have a byte class. It does, however, have a Number and String class. You can use a String object like a character array, almost (like in the various flavours of C). But it isn't as elegant:

my_str.charAt(<index>);

It all depends on what you want to store in each byte. If you're using it as a less memory intensive integer, you're only option is to make an array of Number objects. If you're storing characters, you can use the String class. Or, to stick with the array functionality, you'd have to make an array of Strings. Each one being only one character long. However, if you do it this way, when you try to print out the array, you get a "Object [Array]" statement, instead of the word that it represents.

I hope this helps. :-)
