When passing numeric values to an application using a URL, sometimes one wants to keep them short and have them alphanumeric rather than numeric. Base64 contains a couple of characters that are not URL friendly, and if you remove them you are left with Base62. I needed classes to handle that in both AS3 and [...]

I was looking around for some example code for how to implement full state management in Flash with both functioning back/forward buttons and deeplinking/bookmarking, but couldn’t find any.
