Okay, that sounds good.  Is there some documentation on how to build & run
flex projects without using Flex Builder? I notice that the instructions in
"Getting Started" suggest using Flex Builder, but that's a fair amount of
money to shell out for a hobby project.  The results from "mxmlc -help"
aren't real informative.

I'd like to know how, just in case the "dependencies" don't automatically
lead to the file that holds the game script.

Ant would be fine. I've edited build.xml for java projects, so given one for
Flex I should be able to modify it for my purposes.
