Use the file keyword to work with text files.

Comments:

The file scheme indicates a text file which is located on the user's system. The file is specified by either a full path starting with "/", or a relative path starting from the defaultFolder.

A URL container can be used anywhere another container type is used.

Different operating systems use different characters to mark the end of a line. Mac OS and OS X use a return character (ASCII 13), Unix systems use a linefeed character (ASCII 10), and Windows systems use a return followed by a linefeed. When you use a file URL as a container., Revolution automatically uses the current system's standard end-of-line marker and Revolution's linefeed character.

Tip: To put data into, or get data from, a binary file, use the binfilekeyword instead.

For technical information about URLs and the file URL scheme, see RFC 1630 at <http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1630.txt>.
