Smarter compiler?

I cannot trust my memory but I seem to remember that FLASH MX (2004?) is smarter when you publish your files. It only compiles the part that has been changed. Am I correct??

Or it might only apply to the situation when you "save"(so called "incremental save" vs. "save as"/"save and compact") the file, instead of "publish" it?

And where can I find the relevant articles?

Thanks a lot.

    Thanks for the refreshing!

    BTW, the reason that I am asking this question is that I believe that in many occassions FLASH is smart enough not to compile everything each time you hit publish. I am going to post it in another question.
