How far away is this?

Ok, so I would have expected something like this to work:

    header('Content-type: application/x-shockwave-flash');
    swf_openfile('php://stdout',400, 250, 30, 1, 1, 1);
    $pic = swf_nextid();
    swf_definebitmap($pic, 'php-big.fi');
    swf_placeobject($pic, 1);

But it doesn't seem to.  I'll keep reading.  The ming stuff does look a
lot more intuitive.
