Forums: Index World of Warcraft Reading a text file from a WOW addon during gameplay

Hi Everyone, I am trying to create an addon that does different things depending on the numerical value it reads off a text file that is being continuously updated (by a completely separate program) with numerical values . Is this technically possible? I have tried doing this with Lua's io but it doesn't seem to work.

Thanks! --Mercea (talk) 04:10, October 3, 2011 (UTC)
