I 've been searching the solution for this problem quite long but cannot find any good answer for it. Most of the answers i got lead to the way of using ActiveXObject, which is not suitable for the linux platform (or any platform except window). Can anyone confirm about this problem cannot be solved with only javascript? Because i think i gonna make an applet for it now.

Thanks

Javascript (in the browser) does not have access to the client computer's file system.
