   var ForReading = 1, ForWriting = 2;
   fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   f = fso.OpenTextFile("c:\\testfile.txt", ForWriting, true)
   f.WriteLine("Hello world!");
   f.WriteLine("JScript is fun");
   f = fso.OpenTextFile("c:\\testfile.txt", ForReading);
   r = f.ReadLine();
Function SkipLineInFile
   Const ForReading = 1, ForWriting = 2
   Dim fso, f
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   Set f = fso.OpenTextFile("c:\testfile.txt", ForWriting, True)
   f.Write "Hello world!" & vbCrLf & "VB Script is fun!"
   Set f = fso.OpenTextFile("c:\testfile.txt", ForReading)
   SkipLineInFile = f.ReadLine
End Function
