How to make same binaries using mxmlc, without timestamp?

May 22, 2011 10:32 PM

It seems like mxmlc generates different binary even when the source code is not changed.

for, example,





    public class Test { }



and when i run mxmlc like this :

mxmlc -output case1.swf

mxmlc -output case2.swf


and case1.swf and case2.swf is different!

I found that mxmlc sets metadata and some timestamp in .swf file,


I could get the same binary by "unpacking" .swf, removing timestamp, and manually re-pack it.

( inary-on-same-source )

But it'll be happier when there is a special switch which generates same binary data ( That means, if mxmlc removes all timestamp and metadata which generated in compile time ) !

Is there any way to do it, or should i build specialized mxmlc compiler?
