    Files can be read and written by using java script functions fopen(),fread() and fwrite().
    The function fopen() takes two parameters 1. Path and 2. Mode (0 for reading and 3 for writing). The fopen() function returns -1, if the file is successfully opened.

        For completeness, the OP does not state he is looking to do this in a browser (if he is, as has been stated, it is generally not possible)

          There are two ways to do it:
          1. Using JavaScript extensions (runs from JavaScript Editor), or
          2. Using a web page and ActiveX objects (Internet Explorer only)
          In JavaScript Extensions, you can use
          fh = fopen(getScriptPath(), 0); to open a file
          Using ActiveX objects, following should be included in your code to read a file:
          var fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
          var s = fso.OpenTextFile("C:\\example.txt", 1, true);
