Default move an object along a curved path with actionscript

I am trying to get a movieclip to move along a path using actionscript;
This should have helped http://proto.layer51.com/d.aspx?f=952,
but to be honest I don't have a clue how to get it to what I want

I have attached an outline of the path I want the mc to take,

any help would be much appreciated and would save my sanity!!!

im not sure if you can do that in actionscript though im sure ive seen it done somewhere before,

but all I can say is if you can't find anything just animate it with a motion guide

if your path is drawn by hand you can't (unless whit a motion guide)
if your path is drawn by script the link you posted shoud by fine

or in F8 there woud by the possibility to scan the Path and move along
BUT this is realy have und CPU and also the logic behind it
i have try it a while ago not to hard and whit out to much suxes !
i think if i realy woud need to do it
I woud need atleast 1 week
of research and programing !

hey all,
thanks for the replies.
It's mainly just a curve I am trying to get it to follow, I think I am going to save myself a lot of hassle and do it with tweens for the moment, as I think it will take me too long to figure out otherwise
