    create text file from flash

    is it possible to create a text file from flash which would then store a small piece of information like a string?
    I am fairly sure you can alter files, but am not sure if you can create a discrete file.

    You will need a serverside script to write to a textfile online.

    Flash can write cookies though ( Shared Objects ), but they are only stored locally on the users computer.

    cheers pelle (once again), I think that shared objects may be a little complicated for what I was trying to achieve, which essentially was to create a txt file that could show/store the stuff from various trace() calls except on machines that don't have FlashMX, but where I would like to check to see if the swf was working...
