Not for me, see below, Andy.
I have some data of strings, say, str1,sting2,stringstring3,etc
What is/are "data of strings"?

Are "str1, sting2, stringstring3" names of string [sting?] variables?
I also have a text file that needs to be filled upat some empty places,
How can a text file have empty places?

A textfile being/containing a string of characters.
I need to do this in javascript,
Why do you need to do that in javascript?
could you help me with some apis that
What are apis?
can do this ?
Do what?
I am completely new to javascript. any help is appreciated.

JavaScript can't write in a file.

You'l have to ask that to PHP for instance.

(eventually using XMLHttpRequest javascript function)

Javascript can write a file just as well as php,
both as serverside code.

Javascript can use Scripting.FileSystemObject

Javascript in wscript or cscript can too.

Eventually? Oh, as part of Ajax?

Under classic ASP:

<script language='jscript' runat='server'>

var fso, tf;
fso = new ActiveXObject('Scripting.FileSystemObject');
tf = fso.CreateTextFile(Server.MapPath('/myDir/myfile.txt'), true);

// Write a line with a newline character.
tf.WriteLine('Testing 1, 2, 3.') ;

// Write three newline characters to the file.
tf.WriteBlankLines(3) ;

// Write a text.
tf.Write ('This is a test.');
tf.Close();

</script>

not tested

Under classic ASP:
would that work in my FireFox ?

I undersdand it is server-side script.

If it is :
- would that work in my Apache ?
- if not what javascript script could I use
(with an example it is better for my poor mind)

MapPath() is a generic function ? (to say : localhost)
<script language='jscript' runat='server'>

var fso, tf;
fso = new ActiveXObject('Scripting.FileSystemObject');
tf = fso.CreateTextFile(Server.MapPath('/myDir/myfile.txt'), true);

// Write a line with a newline character.
tf.WriteLine('Testing 1, 2, 3.') ;

// Write three newline characters to the file.
tf.WriteBlankLines(3) ;

// Write a text.
tf.Write ('This is a test.');
tf.Close();

</script>

JavaScript can't write in a file.
FSO in IE can!

JScript in ASP can.

Perhaps you meant "Javascript in a default security environment on a web
page can't write a file on the local hard drive".

<FAQENTRY>, somewhere around 2.2 - I suggest a short section/paragraph
along the general lines of :

Javascript is a general term covering very similar languages used in
differing environments, including client-side Web (the default
assumption in c.l.j), server-side Web (on-topic in c.l.j), and Windows
programming (CScript, WScript, for which news:microsoft.* is preferred).
(any other environments?)
It's a good idea to read the newsgroup and its FAQ. See below.

Actually, forget ASP and read about ASP.NET ;-)

Just kidding. It's true that using JavaScript on ASP to program both the
client and the server was kind of neat. But I wouldn't go back from .NET.

About saving files: Client-side JavaScript running in a browser can do
that too, but it needs the right permissions.

See this
http://www.galasoft-lb.ch/myjavascri...rer/index.html

This feature allows, for example, to write HTA (HTML Applications)
running in IE but having the same permissions as a standalone
application. Think of it as having the ease of a VBA application, but
without having to touch VB (yuk).

HTH,
Laurent

Unlovely, on my Mac I use any M$ possibilities,
(vb vba vscript hta htc are not for me and anyway of no use)
I'm not more advanced
(et avec Apache sur mon Mac de quoi je dispose?)
HTH,
that could :-)
