## Introduction

As I have pushed what I can do in JScript, I have come up against the issue of binary files. The following class solved this for small to medium size files. I am partly including this post here because I am about to put in a post about sending emails with attachments via JScript, and it will use this binary file code to read in the binary attachment files.

So, here is a nice way of accessing binary files from JScript. If you want to access this object from VBScript, then put it in a SWF file. This object has been used in anger to upload files to a Web Service, and has proven to be nice and fast for files in the 0-10 MB range.
