All am trying to do is to copy whatever is in my console output
to a textfile-"blob.txt"

Now what is happening is I get a textfile generated successfully.
But the content is not what is on my console. Rather THE TEXTFILE JUST HAS **[object object]**

Below is my code..can someone tell me what am doing wrong?

Note-fileData is the string that am storing content that gets populated on the console.

Thanks, in advance!!

JavaScript
var a = window.document.createElement('a');
    a.href=window.URL.createObjectURL(new Blob([fileData],{type:'filename/txt'}));
    document.body.appendChild(a);
    a.click();
    document.body.removeChild(a);


What I have tried:

var a = window.document.createElement('a');
    a.href=window.URL.createObjectURL(new Blob([fileData],{type:'filename/txt'}));
    document.body.appendChild(a);
    a.click();
    document.body.removeChild(a);
JavaScript

Again, Javascript running in a browser does not have the ability to read/write files on the client workstation. All client-side resources, including the file system, are off-limits to code running in a browser.

am actually parsing pdf data to the console, and is thesame data I am trying download a text file. Was wondering if you have any suggestion sir

You're only hope is to upload the PDF to the server, have the server do the parsing and generate a file to send back to the client to download. The client doesn't do any of the work and the text file can be downloaded and saved on the client machine by the browser.
