Yes, the Falcon compiler has barely changed since then. It still grabs
a few chunks from the flex-sdk repo.

You need to get 'flex-sdk', 'flex-asjs' and 'flex-falcon'. Make life
easy for yourself and put those three repos in the same directory,
with the default names. Then start to get the Flex SDK to compile
(this part has a pretty good README so that shouldn't be a problem) as
that will set up some stuff on your system that the other project
'need'. Then do 'flex-falcon', basically running 'ant wipe-all all' in
the root directory will build both Falcon and FalconJX.Then you're
ready for 'flex-asjs', but I haven't touched that in a while, so
others may be of more help there. I should think that also comes down
to running an ant build file.

I'm not sure what you mean by this... There are about a 1000 tests for
FalconJX... or do you want to write that test just to get you started?
