Does an authoritative introduction to reversing SWFs exist?
Should one be written?
Does anyone keep any kind of bibliography of existing work?
I would have found some sort of central starting knowledgebase very helpful in my
adventures so far.
Naturally the AVM2 overview and the SWF specification would be the basis for anyone
serious I guess?
For someone not intimately familiar with Adobe and Actionscript, I don't know how/where to
find the possibly relevant adobe documentation that I need, not everything is of the same
