    If you are writing an AIR application, then you can use File and FileStream to read and write files. If you are making a flash movie, then no, you cannot read and write arbitrary files. Flash is a client-side technology. You can use FileReference to allow the user to select a file to upload or a file to save data to, but you cannot just read and write files on the user's computer without permission.
