can an HTML form write to a text file?


I'd like to know if an HTML form page can be made to
output to a text file on the same computer.
The references that I've consulted only discuss the
GET and POST actions communicating with the
server, but I'd like to write to an existing file on the
browser's same machine.

TIA,
J.

Brian. There are better ways to bring people's mistakes to their attention
than being a pompous ass.

Thank you. I didn't think a response was worth it.

Maybe he can redeem himself by trying to be helpful?
