Just use the mxmlc and create a script to call it and send it what you
need. It's fast and relatively simple to setup command line
copulation, there is many ways to set this up but I would just use
whatever scripting language to create actionscript files and compile
About the others, Swfmill is old, ming is older, Haxe you can do it
but I dont know enough about it to help you.
