    JavaScript is purely a client-side language, and unless used with an Ajax call has no capability to read from or write to a file (except a cookie), communicate with the server, access a database or the client's operating system, or alter the default behaviour of the browser.

    In IE only it is possible in certain circumstances to use ActiveX objects to access the directory and read files. This is not recommended for a variety of reasons.
