as3shebang – The ActionScript 3.0 Interpreter

as3shebang is an executable program based on the RedTamarin runtime.

It allows you to run uncompiled ActionScript 3.0 source code as an executable shell script.

The executable is totally independent of any other installed runtimes, and so can be installed with Redtamarin runtimes in parallel or without them.

trace( "Program.filename = " + Program.filename );
trace( "startupDirectory = " + Program.startupDirectory );
trace( "    Program args = " + Program.argv );
trace( "" );
trace( "Redtamarin v" + Runtime.version + " " + (Runtime.is64bit() ? "64-bit": "32-bit" ) );
