[thelist] Taking screen shots from SWF files

An actual screenshot is pretty simple... depends on your operating system.

But from your mention of "PHP" I'm guessing that you may not actually 
have a screen, and are asking "What type of PHP routine can parse a SWF 
file and construct a bitmap representing the screen display at some 
indeterminate point in time?"

If I guessed the question right then I'm not conversant enough with PHP 
libraries to suggest a path, but did I understand the question correctly
