*Explanation:

I`m trying to program a little Flash game involving a pullstring doll... however I`

m having a problem involving mathemetics

involving tangents… now you may wonder what pullstring dolls in

Flash have to do with tangents…well… I`ll try to explain…

The Problem:

I`m trying to create... a line between a certain point on the doll and a point on the circular "finger handle"... However... I don`

t know how

to make it so you can contuously set the point on the “circular

handle” on the edge… on the tangent closest to the point on the

doll…

In brief:

At the moment the ends of the line are on the center of the doll

(which is desired) and on the center of the “circular finger handle”

(which is not desired)… as I`ve stated… I want the 2nd point of

the line to be on the closest tangent point of the circle. to the

center of the doll…*

So anyway… can anyone help me?
