Is there a BIND type method so event can point at parent/class rather than target

hi all,

just recently been using a lot of prototype javascript stuff, and was wondering there was anything like the “bind” method, for use in AS3. It’s proved quite useful to be able to look both at the as well as the class object the handler function might be associated with, so if anyone has any pointers in the right direction for me, that would be great. lease feel free to point out anything obvious if I’ve missed something here!
