The Extends action will be used to define a new object extending another object. The declaration in ActionScript is:

class A extends B;

In an SWF action script, you don't exactly declare objects, you actually instantiate them and define their functions. This action creates a new object named s2 which is an extension of the object s1.

Use this action whenever you need to inherit an object without calling its constructor.
