SWF File Example - Dump Output

This section provides a tutorial example on how to dump the file structure and list of tags of SWF file using the 'swfdump' command from 'SWFTools'.

If you want to see the file structure and list of tags of a SWF file, you can use the "swfdump" command from the SWFTools package to create a dump of the SWF file.

Here is the output of "swfdump" on rectangle.swf:

C:\herong>\local\swftools\swfdump rectangle.swf
