[Haskell-cafe] swf flv decoder in haskell

I have a project called hswf which provides a Haskell library for
roundtripping (i.e. encode . decode and decode . encode are morally
equal to the identity function) SWF files. The source is available at
http://github.com/batterseapower/hswf/. You are welcome to try it out
if it looks useful, with the following provisos:

* I have given it only limited testing on real-world SWF files
* I don't have any special support for the embedded audio/video
formats: they are provided to you as bytestrings. So currently you can
use the library to get to the video data but no further

I still need to find time to give it the final push to make it
suitable for release :(

Good luck with your project!
