Re: [Swftools-common] Use of obsolete NAMECHARACTER

The best I could find, was this piece of information:

It says:
"Define the name of an object (for buttons, bitmaps, sprites and sounds.)"
"Intended to name objects so one can reference them in an ActionScript. 
Instead, PlaceObject2 was used which is better since one object can be placed 
multiple times in your display list and each should have a different name."

I didn't read the whole source code of SWFTools, though. Maybe it would make 
everything more obvious.

(NAMECHARACTER is not the only obsolete tag supported by SWFTools)

I was analyzing the output of some SWFs produced by swfc and found that it uses 
the obsolete NAMECHARACTER tag.  Is this for backward compatibility with older 
Flash runtimes, and if so, what does the NAMECHARACTER tag do in those 
runtimes?  Adobe doesn't document this tag, so any advice on its function would 
be greatly appreciated.
