I'd like my jsfl script to read some external data before doing it's thing. Is there any way I can do this?

Either through reading XML, or parsing tabulated data.

Can I create an interface with a text field which is then parsed, for instance?
(I'll check the help, as I only thought of this whilst writing)

Thanks,
Dave

Sorted: the FLfile API built into Flash MX 7.2

also a reminder for others...

to get the path to the currect fla-file use the
flash.getDocumentDOM().path
parameter. Then it is easy to load the external files from the same
folder - path.
