    loading text from file

    lreadl
      I want to load one line of a text file on my hard drive into a string variable in an actionscript class. I've looked up loadVariables, and it looks like I'd have to have change each line (17000+) of my text file to include at variable name, and create 17000+ new variables. I've looked up loadVars, and I see stuff about loading from websites and XML formatting. I'm not sure how to proceed. What's the simplest way to just take a specified line of a text file and set a string variable in a class to that line?

          Its always better using the XML instead of text files.
          However, you already prepared some text files.
          But, you have use the variable name in the text files , so that only you can retrieve them by loading.
          I added some samples for loadVars. It may be helpful for you...
