  var ForReading = 1, ForWriting = 2;
  fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
  f = fso.OpenTextFile("c:\\testfile.txt", ForWriting, true);
  f.Write("Header");
  f.Write("1234567890987654321");
  f.Close();
  f = fso.OpenTextFile("c:\\testfile.txt", ForReading);
  return(f.Read(6));
