So, I am working out something fairly babyish for one of my
"introduction to programming"
nonsense in the Summer and have a stack that has the dimensions:

it has a transparent graphic with a 2 pixel black border of dimensions
1024 x 768

and an animated walking stick figure called img "MAN" (animated GIF)
I plan to use the arrow keys on the keyboard to move "MAN" around.
HOWVER, I don't really want "MAN" walking backwards sometimes, so
decided to FLIP him
flip img "MAN" horizontal (grammatically a bit dicky, but coding-wise
when I do that the animation stops . . . not good at all.
So . . . questions:
1. Is there a way to, while flipping my GIF, ensuring it keeps animating?
2. Or, am I going to have a leftward facing version and a rightward
facing version and muck around with
