    Exporting To Text File


    I want to be able to export some data to a text file from Flash. Preferable into csv format but any text will do. I hoped this would be quite simple but I cant find much on it.

    Has anyone tried this or got any advice in doing it.

    As far as I know you can't actually write a text file from flash. I seem to remember that this was a security feature (back in the days of flash 3). If I were you I'd take a look at some of these third party products which will do this for you - I think that there is one called Zinc (I saw this advertised on the home page of this site) - there are others too.

    Failing that, if you have the skills you can write your own player application which you can send data to and from using the FSCommand. I did something like this in C#/.NET so that my flash app could save simple files.
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    You can also use PHP to write on a text file. See the function 'fwrite' at www.php.net
