For ActionScript, the ABC extension file is an encoded file created by the Flash compiler.

ActionScript is an object-oriented programming language originally developed by Macromedia Inc.

The ActionScript virtual machine, which executes ABC files, is included with Adobe programs such as Flash and Flash Player.

However, it is important to note that ABC files are only intended to be executed by the virtual machine, not to be edited with these programs.
