    Well, would you like if some web site created a directory on your harddisk ?

    The answer is probably no ..

    The best way is therefore to provide a file upload component (think there is a htmlb component for this), and once the file is uploaded you can display it to the user/or process it in any way you want

    The file I want to see is already in my local HDD, but doing this :

    String myScript = "";

    m_response.write(myScript);

    I can´t see it, because a javascript access error (I have access to this disk).

    ¿Does anybody have an example that works?
