I'm trying to find out how to read a .txt file and simply assign its contents to a variable. Is this possible?
[Edit] Right after posting I found this page which seems like it might be in the direction I want to go but I haven't checked it out completely yet: http://extendscript.blogspot.com/2009/06/read-tab-delimited-text-file.html
Just posting the link for future searchers or if anyone will tell me 'Hey! That's not what you're looking for!'
For anyone interested, the simplified answer for me was:
var fileToParse = File ('path');
var dataToGet = fileToParse.readln();
I only needed the one line, so thats why my example above is so simple.
