    What is the file extension for shockwave player files?

    I have FlashPlayer so I've learned the files it plays have .swf extensions. But I haven't found what what the extension is for shockwave player files. (I don't need shockwave player so have never downloaded it or discovered its extension. Can someone help me just to satisfy my curiosity?
    I've created my own website...a collection of moving, sad and happy and humorous poems which I would like to share with others. They come from stories my dad used to tell me when I was a kid. If you could glance at my site and if you know of others who might enjoy it and perhaps tell them of it, I would be most appreciative. Thank you. The address is www.metrocast.net/~wumply/exper-1.html

    Yet Flash Player has that same .swf extension. I would have thought Maceromedia would have distinguished between the 2 players. Especially since they do bother to distinguish between them on their site. The difference is an FAQ answer.

    Perhaps they just think differently than I do.

    I think the files use the same final format, hence the .swf for both products, however, each is used for slightly different purposes and may have different programming APIs.... Like, you see Flash based websites, and Shockwave based online games
