    Thumbs down Move with

    Please explain the sentences below:

    In ''word web dictionary'' when i looked up a word ''whistle'' then it showed the following results

    1.Move with, or as with, a whistling sound.
    2.Move, send, or bring as if by whistling.
    3.Give a signal by whistling.
    so my first question is that the first sentence ''move with'' or ''move as with'' express the same meanings and is ''as with'' same as ''with''? now my second question is that is "as if by whistling" same as ''by whistling'' or ''as by whistling'', though there is no any sentences with ''as by whistling'' i saw a sentence like this in a book. please explain it grammatically. source:

    This post has little to do with the thread you posted it in. I have moved it to a fresh thread.
