From redtamarin project page:
Simply put, redtamarin is based on the Tamarin project (eg. the Flash Player Virtual Machine)
and allow to run AS3 code on the command-line.

But because Tamarin only support the AS3 builtins (Object, Array, etc.),
redtamarin add numerous native functionalities, so you can test if your program
run under Windows or Linux, or read/write files, or send data with sockets, etc.

Put another way, if Adobe AIR allow you to build desktop executable with a GUI,
redtamarin allow you to build desktop executable with a CLI.

- download redtamarin SDK for WIN and unzip somewhere you'll remember,
- download RedTamarin Project template and unzip in FlashDevelop\Projects
- (recommended) manually edit the path to the SDK in the following template files:
build.bat.template, package.bat.template, Project.as3proj (XML),
- (recommended) follow @zwetan on twitter to be notified about SDK updates.

Getting started:
- start FlashDevelop and create a new AS3 RedTamarin project,
- note that lib/redtamarin.swc provides code completion (latest SWC version here),
- see how you must (manually) include all the classes to be compiled in:,
- go read about Tamarin core API and redtamarin extensions,

- now open your main class (named after the project) to start coding,
- build/test as usual using F8/F5/Ctrl+Enter,
- publish the EXE console application by running package.bat,
- and have fun, obviously.

RedTamarin is awesome! it's a good way for AS3ServerSide, multi threading (via localConnection or sockets) extend native AS3 API, and more.. :D

Ne baisse jamais les bras, car c'est à ce moment là que le miracle risque de se produire..

I am semi-new to this but am quickly learning. This might take me a while to setup, but I am going to figure it out.
