Retrieve data from file

mattbr Wondering if anyone has any suggestions ( or examples) of retrieving and reusing data that is written to a file in a previous ebook session.

I want to have a page where my users can set a couple of preferences to save them completing the same details each time they use a particular form. I'm hoping I can write it to a file and then 'read' it when they come back and insert it in a form?

Alternatively, would cookies work? If so, any examples on setting and retrieving the info within eBookCompiler would be handy?!

Many thanks

Alaska I sent Matt a demo with the project files.  It writes a .js file - which doesn't need parsing.

best -
