    Smile open file


    i would like to read and write to a file using ajax, but i would want the file to be constantly read. So if a change is made to that file, it is instantly seen. So my questions are:

    1) Is this possible using ajax?
    2) If so, can anyone point me to a good tutorial or give me a starting point?

    Thanks for your time.

    Welcome to DevX

    What kind of a file are you talking about? A Text File? A Database File? Something else entirely?
