Interestingly (perhaps!!) is that ActionScript 3 (don't know about
earlier versions) treats associative arrays and objects as equivalent
things. From their docs: "Associative arrays are unordered
collections of key and value pairs. " You don't write their docs, do
you? :-) They can be instantiated by declaring either an array or an
It also allows the same syntax to refer to elements in standard
(indexed?) arrays and objects (associative arrays). So myArray is
an index reference for an array, and myObject[someValue] can be used
as a key reference for an object / associative array. So I guess
someone coming from that environment might be understandably confused
by Rev's behaviour.
