    Flex 2 compiler option "--keep-generated-actionscript" not working

      As a newbie to Flex 2, I was working through the first example in the Developer Center: Flex Quick Starts: Getting started.
      The code for the first Flex application is:

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      xmlns:mx=" http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"
      horizontalAlign="center" verticalAlign="center"

      <mx:Button id="myButton" label="I'm a button!" />

      I am not using Flex Builder. I am compiling using "mxmlc" in the Flex 2 SDK. From the Windows XP Professional command prompt, I issued the following command:

      mxmlc --keep-generated-actionscript=true --strict=true --file-specs MyFirst.mxml

      Only the file "MyFirst.swf" was created; there was no "MyFirst.as" in the directory.

      Can anyone shed any light as to why the actionscript file was not in the directory even though I included the appropriate compiler directive?

      In addition, the instruction "To view the full source, right-click the Flex application and select View Source from the context menu." did not work; there was no option in the context menu to view the source. Any comments as to why I did not get expected results?

      The version of the Flex 2 SDK compiler I am using is: Version 2.0.1 build 155542. I download and installed the SDK on my PC today under Windows XP Professional.

      Thanks in advance for any help on the two issues stated above.
