Free software

Hello,

I wrote a client side socket program in Flash (action script) and exported in .swf format which connects to a server. I want to do the same thing in opensource (free) software. Is there any software available where i can write actionscript and export it as swf and itegrate on browser?

Thanks

I forgot to ask you: Can you tell me how I best start learning flash. I mean, can you recommend a certain book for a very beginner. Thanks.

Search flashdevelop, you can build an open source flash development environement around that.
