    If you mean for uploading to a file, then you can do this with an

    <INPUT TYPE="FILE">

    tag....you need some sort of CGI to proerly accept, decode and store this file to exist on the server..

    P.S....this would be better on the Tech Board

    The closest thing with pure javascript would be saving a cookie on the users HD.

    javascript is pretty much a client-side script language. it's useful to animate, update, or otherwise change some features which are dependant on a variable present on the user's machine.

    for any server-side stuff, i would stick with php, asp, or something cgi.
