Introduction to Remote File Input and Output

Silk Test Classic provides file functionality to allow users to read/write data to or from files. The data can be used to drive testing of the application, to control the application as in the INI file, and to store testing data or results that do not fit in the result file.

A file is a resource that is controlled and referenced by file handle variables. This resource has a scope (life), it is local or remote, and it has attributes or modes. A file can be opened as read only, write only, or update (read/write). The file can have attributes like shared or not shared.
