hi!
your aim probably is to understand the structure of the .swf,
then you don't need a program to extract the byte of the .swf
you just need the knowledge of how the .swf format structured,
then you will be able to write a the program yourself :)

here is a link which you could start from:

i don't think there is anything to read in swf file, there are meaningless (at some level) bytes.
there is no any easy readable language that can present a swf file, it's like an .exe
if you want to understand how to edit them, you should know the .swf format.

Hi elfraga:

I think the swfquicker is doing the same job which you are looking for. Because it has a build in swf editor, by which you can open swf file and then edit according to your choice. Did you read these features part :

http://www.sothink.com/swfquicker/index.htm

SWF Editing

Sothink SWF Quicker is also a SWF editor. After you import a SWF file, the program offers you the ability to edit SWF just the same as you have FLA file. Once you lose the FLA file, you do not need to worry about how to convert SWF to FLA in order to make the modification. Just within SWF Quicker, you may edit SWF file of almost all the elements, such as ActionScript, Text, Shape, and URL, in your desired way without FLA.

Decompile back and Export Movie

After you import a SWF movie and finish editing, you can decompile back and export the movie as a *.swf file as well. Furthermore, the Publish Wizard will help you insert SWF movie into an HTML file.

Please download the demo copy then you will easily understand.

elfraga, another tips for you, if you want to learn complex flash animation then you should concentrate on actionscript, in this case swf scanner is good to see the code of actionscript.

i am not looking for a software that reads the actionscript that
is in the inside code of an swf!!!  i am looking for a decompresser
of the bytecode of the plug in and thw swf itself!!

i know a lot of programs that can do that!! but they only read the
public data.

heeey, elfraga  :)
please be calm my friend :)
they use the swf format knowledge to do this.
it seems like you asked your question in a wrong place, "programming" could be better choice
