Classes and OOP in Flash

Being the non-programmer that I am, I was recently scouring the WWW in search of good examples and tutorials on using class files in Flash. I have read that class files and object-oriented programming (OOP) are generally considered a ‘best practice’ in the programming world, and wanted a better understanding of their principles and how they can be used in Flash’s Actionscript 2.0.

While I’ve read plenty of posts by people complaining that OOP is overrated, I have yet to read a convincing reason NOT to use it. It’s a clean approach, it promotes re-usability, and generally forces the developer to think ahead and plan out the code more carefully than a haphazard conditional programming approach would allow.

I’m still an OOP newbie, but I thought I’d post links to some tutorials I’ve found enlightening and very helpful so far.
