Animation technique?

Hello -

Can anyone tell me, is there a means -- either in flash, java, or other
commonly installed medium -- of mapping a bitmapped image to the mouse
cursor/pointer, and then when the cursor is moved, have the image scale
either larger or smaller? E.g., when moved upwards, the image gets
smaller, when moved downwards, the image gets bigger?

Thanks,

RB

Yes, this is possible, though stretching a bitmap will look kind of
nasty. Maybe you take a look at Zorn's DHTML (google it) to get some
ideas. The basics of e.g. tracking mouse movement are in it, too.
