Actionscript Quine

A quine is a program that generates a copy of its own source text as its complete output.. The quine page has quines in a variety of languages, except the one I’ve worked with the most: Flash Actionscript. Not having anything currently better to do, I took up the puzzle for geeky “hackish amusement”.

Here’s my actionscript quine. Could be optimized, but it works! Here’s the same quine but with linebreaks, to make it somewhat more readable. That was strangely fun!

Ahhh, science: is there anything you can’t figure out?
