What is a SWC file?
A .SWC file is a Flash Component distribution archive file.
Files with .swc file extension are Adobe Flash component distribution files. SWC stands for ShockWave Component. These files contain ActionScript files, debug data, and icons compressed utilizing the ZIP archive format. An SWC file is a zipped package of symbols and source code partially transformed into object code that allows a Flash or Flex developer to distribute classes and assets as runnable programs.
SWC files are generated by using Flash Builder and its components from the Adobe Flash Professional authoring tool. An SWC file is a library of classes and assets that are necessary for Flash to function properly.
Compiled SWC files are used by Flash, a deprecated technology to run animations and applications in web browsers. The Chrome browser stopped supporting Flash end of 2020.
