    Question Editing text files with flash?

    Me again.

    Okay. Story is I need to make it so that my client can edit some text files that are displayed in a frilly little font with shades and all that "mainflashpage.swf" accesses to display it. I heard you can do a lot of things like this with php. I know NOTHING about php. So is there any way that I can use flash to edit a text file?

    I remember about using void at the end of declaring a function if your not returning data. I am right? So how would I go about doing this?

    Here is an example how to do it. Check the php. However, the flash is AS2. Come back here when you have problems setting it up and ask specific questions.

    can Flash write files by itself?
    Well, the answer is no, you need a back-end language in order to perform the file writing.
