writing to external javascript file

Hi

I have an external .js file to my webpaage. Can i change the value of these
variables from my htm page, so that they are changed for good.

ie - i know this wont work, but it is an example.

externalFile.js
-------------
var alpha = "This is some text"
frontend.htm
--------------
<form name="changer" method="get" action="externalFile.js">
<input name="alpha" type="text" id="alpha" value="this is some new text that
will completely replace the old text in the file">
</form>

That requires server-side scripting (e.g., PHP or ASP).
