View Read and write text.jsx
// In this demo:
// 1. I first prep the output file path
// 2. Then write the text file: "current date and time + some placeholder text"
// - As long as you don't change the path, it gets written next to this script file.
// 3. Then read the text file
// 4. And finally trigger alert() to show the text that was written.
// - At the top it shows each line as an array
// - And below that it just shows the full text as it was written.
