    I want to be a be able to read and modify an XML file from th swf. now I've figured out the read part (built a parser) and I know how to build an XML file. But the problem is that flash doesn't save the created XML file as whatever.xml as I had hoped. Instead I have to resort to PHP using fopen with write permission and fput to put in the XML code. I learned XML just so I can avoid doing that!

    PLus, XML would then be rather redundant since I can easily use .txt to upload and modify variables with PHP's fopen and fclose functions.

    Where is flash going to save the file? If it is in a web browser they have no access to the local machine.

    Web servers don't generally allow you to save files to them, my guess is the ones that do wouldn't be around for very long :-)

    Thanks
