Only tool what I used in the past for debugging ActionScript 2 was Macromedia Flex Builder 2.
You can use Flash CS but it was not so easy.

Dang. I don't recall using any sort of debugger in AS2. Flash IDE comes with a debugger but it was never an easy thing to work with, and I always relied on the slew of trace statements.

Having said that, there is one called Xray which might be helpful but I don't think I've seen any with memory usage tool.

Unfortunately none of those solutions are suitable to provide adequate debugging information in particular in regards to memory usage and garbage collection. I had to create a custom script that runs on the flash lite device to perform the task.
Thank you for the help anyway.
