creating and reading a file

creating and reading a file

  
hi,
i am new to outsystems and wondering as to how to create a text file and read it after that in outsystems. Do we have any controls for it. please help me out detailing the process of acheiving it.
Thanx..
Hi Leo,

Can you detail a little bit more what you want to do?
Welcome to OutSystems.

Remember that this is a web platform, so it is not optimized to work with files. You can do it with specific extensions like FileSystem, but the best would be to read from and write to database. Will it be possible in your scenario?

hi Andre and Nuno,
thanks for the reply, 
i get the luck to use FileSystem. my need is to read the file and parse it. since right now i dont have read/write permission to a folder on  the server, so for the time being i used file upload widget.. but it is keeping the content in binary format. is there a way i can convert it to text format at runtime, so that i can parse it. I dont want to save the binary content in database.
thanks again in advance for your valuable feedback.
Use the BinaryData extension to convert to text
