WHY DOESN'T THIS WORK@%$#@#$^@!!!!!

on moveChar whichsprite, dx, dy

    ox = sprite(whichsprite).locH
    oy = sprite(whichsprite).locV

    --find the slope of the line between the two points
    --and reduce it

    slopeN = (ox - dx)
    slopeD = (oy - dy)

    gcd = getGCD(slopeN, slopeD)

    rorX = (slopeN/gcd)
    rorY = (slopeD/gcd)

    put ox, oy, dx, dy, slopeN, slopeD, gcd, rorX, rorY

    --move the character based on the rise over run

    repeat while ((sprite(whichsprite).locH <> dx) OR (sprite(whichsprite).locV <> dy))
        if (sprite(whichsprite).locH <> dx) then
            sprite(whichsprite).locH = (sprite(whichsprite).locH + rorX)
        end if
        if (sprite(whichsprite).locV <> dy) then
            sprite(whichsprite).locV = (sprite(whichsprite).locV + rorY)
        end if
        updateStage
    end repeat

end moveChar

sigh. maybe director is ghetto and cant handle adding negative numbers?
