    Hello all. Just exploring baja to enhance my board and all some programs to
    the board. I am stuck on file access by baja. So here are the questions and ho pe someone can answer in detail

    1) I want to be able to read from a file for example 5 varables at a time and take a action depending on what is in the varables?


    2) I want to be able to write to a file for example 10 varables I get input from the user
    ~~

    3) I want to be able to detect if the file exist before writing or reading?



    I understand how to do this in basic but baja is new to me. So if someone can help with this I appreciate it

    Yes, you can do all of that. For example, see exec/file_io.src.

    I would recommend using JavaScript instead however as it is much more powerful and Synchronet has a File class which provides even better than the file I/O support in Baja.
