i am having exactly the same problem I have an flash file (swf) which
contains all the hyperlink to the main site. I wanna to dig all the
relative sites which that flash file contains. Is this achievable??.
Currently i am creating an link manually for all those links and then
digging. This, considering the long-term requirements will not help as lot
of sub-directories will getting added, is there any workaround??

Cheers
Srini

PS; We are writing an wrapper class for htdig in java

Hmm.. there is a libswf somewhere out there (sadly it does not seem
to be open sourced though) which is also being used by the swf exten-
sions of PHP. This lib (maintained by Paul Haeberli at SGI) focusses
on creating swf, but it might be a starting point.

There should also be the source of a Netscape plugin (see FreshMeat)
created by Olivier Debon. This guy also wrote some other software
which handles flash format. Perhaps this could be used as a basis
for an external parser.

cheers,
