if you have this file on the server, you can import its text content via AJAX. the text is then available through the .responseText property (given that the file is not processed on the server).

as I said, do a simple AJAX request.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. // a very basic procedure, may not work in IE (kindly refer to the link on the bottom of this post for further information)
  2. var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
  3. xhr.open("POST", "your_file.txt", false);
  4. xhr.send();
  5. var txt = xhr.responseText;
  6. // now you have the content of "your_file.txt" in the txt variable
further introductions & tutorials you can find in our Offsite Links, AJAX section.
